Configure services and service applications in SharePoint 2013

Published: July 16, 2012

Summary: Introduces articles that describe how to configure services for SharePoint 2013.

Applies to:  SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013 

In SharePoint 2013, you can configure individual services independently, and you can implement only the services that your organization needs.

Deployed services are named service applications. A service application provides a resource that you can share across sites in a farm or sometimes across multiple farms, and users can access them through a hosting web application. Service applications are associated to web applications by service application connections.

For more information about service applications and services, see Technical diagrams for SharePoint 2013. If you plan to use Office Web Apps, you must install and configure them to work with SharePoint 2013. For more information, see How Office Web Apps work on-premises with SharePoint 2013.
