SharePoint 2016 - Server Role Configuration simplified

New Hybrid feature configuration on every site collection in SharePoint 2016.

One remarkable change in the SharePoint 2016 installation method from its predecessor is , now SharePoint 2016 installation allows you to choose the server role on the SharePoint farm.

Earlier version, you have to do manually , I mean you need to come up with capacity plan and design plan before elevating the SharePoint server for each role.

Configuring the DSN, Alternate Access Map , identifying the service application to scale out to different server , really its hectic process for SharePoint Farm admin.

Now SharePoint 2016, simplified this during  installation.
SharePoint 2016 Server Roles are

Front End
Distribute Cache

and the Single Server Farm.
