I am new to the GIS Administration world and struggling to wrap my head around this. Currently we are using SQL Sever 14 with a single  SQL Server instance for all our enterprise GIS needs. Hundreds of SDE databases with millions of features and large terrain datasets all on this single instance. Is there a better way to approach this? Any best practices from ESRI? What is the best way to determine if we need to configure more SQL Server instances?
