In this article the authors provide an in-depth examination of the architecture of SharePoint products and technologies: WSS and SPS. WSS provides the foundation for creating collaborative Web sites that support customization and personalization and SPS complements WSS by playing the role of a content aggregator. This article explains how.

I read an article in documentation:
When for example u want to use service applications you need to connect your service
applications to the WFE’s. This is done using a proxy (don’t think WCF/ASMX proxy… think of it
in the more generic term for now (as compared to 2007)).
I donnt exactly undestand this - so what is this proxy and what is communication Protocol between WFE and the application server?
Second question is if it is truth, then if there are two farms or more then could you search content through all of them using one Search Service Application? And would it be enough to have ONE search server in total and on the other farm there would be
only some proxy to search sevice?
I recently completed an in-place upgrade from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 to SharePoint Server 2010. While the first half of this migration process seems to have worked from WSS 3.0 to Foundation 2010 the upgrade from Foundation 2010 to Server
2010 has left the installation with only the Foundation level service applications.
If I go to add a new service application the only ones listed are the foundation service applications but if I go to check the current license it confirms the enterprise server edition is installed. I have re-ran the product configuration wizard and if I
check the patch status in central administration it confirms that all the enterprise components are installed they just aren't showing up in the service applications listing!
Any ideas on how I can add these missing services to central administration?
