With the new version of SharePoint some of the administration tasks will be more friendly, one example is the MinRole Feature.
MinRole feature will allow the administrators managing server roles when setting up or adding servers to a SharePoint farm.
This new way of managing server roles will allow administrators to focus on what each role should have as service associated, and not spending a lot of time to do it server by server.
The three main benefits Microsoft identifies for using MinRole are:
- Simplified deployment
- Improved performance and reliability
- Simpler capacity planning and farm scalability
