We have a SP 2016 single server farm where SharePoint and SQL are installed in the same machine.

only 1 site collection exists in the farm and due to recent increase in team size, we are facing performance and site availability issues.

I would like to increase the servers in the farm.

What is the best/recommended approach?


Vaghasia provided the best doc to perform the process of adding servers. And just to note, i assume you are using single server farm role for now.

You will need to change to new roles for your server. So make sure you have read this article and this article
