New to subscription edition | Migrating from SP 2019

Copper Contributor

Hello community:


Is SharePoint subscription edition the next on-prem version?  I have a need to consolidate 3 SP 2019 farms for a customer which is poorly configured, and I'd like to rebuild a new farm.  Does it make sense to use the SharePoint subscription edition?  Also, is the installation/configuration very similar to the SP 2019 farm?  All the roles will be scaled (i.e., WFE, Search, App, etc., minimum 2 of each).  Also, I will be using a tool like ShareGate or AvePoint Fly to do the migration from SP 2019 to the subscription edition.


Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Yes it makes sense to move to SE, and it is 99.9% the same as far as installation, configuration and usage
