SharePoint Server 2016 – My new Lab

Not sure why Microsoft does this, is it to push all of us to the cloud?

But for each version of SharePoint the need for servers seems to explode, this is my shinny new SharePoint 2016 lab, I’m trying to follow the guides for MinRole.

Maybe I overdoing it but it turns out, I’ll need at least 7 servers to build a new SharePoint 2016 Farm with the services I need.
