Upgrade: Juno -> Pike (or maybe later)

Hi, I agree here, maybe a forklift upgrade might be easier. As Mohammed pointed out the placement and cells are one of the big ones. 
If anything, you would need to upgrade just pre placement and pre cell and then use the upgrade path there to overcome that hurdle and then move forward. With 11 (at least) releases , it’s gonna be rough. 
I would argue, carefully with the amount of changes, you are trying to migrate windows 3.11 to windows 10...
It probably can be done but (aside the 32 bit etc:)) ... wow

If you need to upgrade on existing hardware, why not consolidate some instances and free up some nodes and build the environment then up?

Good luck!:)
