SharePoint Server 2016 has been designed, developed, and tested with the Microsoft Software as a Service (SaaS) strategy, building on SharePoint Online as its core. Drawing extensively from that experience, SharePoint Server 2016 offers you new and improved, highly flexible deployment options. You can choose from a traditional on-premises deployment, a hosted service with Microsoft Office 365 sites powered by Microsoft SharePoint Online, deployment in Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), or a mix of these options with a hybrid approach, empowering you to choose how and when you take advantage of on-premises or cloud-based solutions, all without changing the user experience. Seamless integration with on-premises people experiences and taxonomy ensure a consistent experience within or beyond the firewall.

I’ve had the chance to play with it for a little while, and here's everything you need to know about installation. I am going to setup SharePoint 2016 with backend SQL Server 2016 in a highly available failover cluster environment to test its core features and show you how we can start its installation Step by Step with 4 Node Cluster, two Node will act as APP Server’s and two Node will act as Web Server’s.
