4. In Choose the installation you want screen, you will see two options namely Basic and Advanced. If you choose Basic option then the product will be installed on a single server with no option to add another server or to build a farm at a later stage. Therefore, you should choose Basic option only if you are very sure that your deployment will not grow very large and will not need to scale out by adding additional servers. When you select the Advanced option the product will be installed on a single server or on a server farm.
