Summary:Introduces articles that describe how to configure services for SharePoint Server 2016.

In SharePoint Server 2016, 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.
