Reviews for this release

This are an amazing set of scripts. I would give it 10 *stars If I could..The scalability options are tremendous and the compliance we were able to achieve it fantastic. I implemented this by packaging this as an executable with GUI through Powershell Studio and added support for 2016 and 2017.

Super cool tool. I modified it little bit to adjust on our environment. Installation process is down to 15 minutes for XX hours, love the product.

Awesome tool - very powerful and configurable. Saw you present this at PASS Summit last year, and I'm just now getting around to using it. No more manual installs for me!

This is an incredibly powerful tool! It took me 4 days to figure out how to use it, but now that I have, it will save tons of time. Plus, since it's easily extended with pre/post scripts it will only get better from here. My only issue was that I found it difficult to get started, but that was partly due to my lack of experience in both PowerShell and installing SQL instances. Learning fast now!

This is wonderful tool to install SQL Server especially with multiple environments that you want set up exactly the same way every time. It is easy to set up to work with any configuration and it will even install other software like RedGate, etc. I look forward to updates including clustered installs! Great job, thank you for sharing it!!
