  • Hello,

    You can find some documentation here :

    • Official from Microsoft : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/SharePoint/install/install-sharepoint-server-2016-across-multiple-servers
    • An example of 3 tiers installation community article I found (it uses the SharePoint installer GUI) : http://mstechtalk.com/sharepoint-2016-multi-server-farm-installation-guide/

    I personally use AutoSPInstaller to install SharePoint 2016 (https://autospinstaller.com/). There is more and more admins that are using PowerShell DSC (I'm am slowy migrating to PowerShell DSC as well but it takes time and the learning curve is quite big).

    I recommend you to try the installation on some dev/test environments first and to automate your installation as much as you can (AutoSPInstaller or Powershell DSC).

  • And for the architecture it really depends. What service do you want to deploy / how many users will you have / is it for production or dev ? You can have one SP server for really small or test environments, 3 tiers environments, redundant 3 tiers and redundant SQL, etc... Microsoft documentation on SharePoint architecture is really good, you should have a look.
