The following is also a good article on how the main elements of the SharePoint 2010 service applications – Here’s an excerpt on the article itself:

This “In a Nutshell” article is an attempt to distil the core elements of service applications down to brass tacks. I will not be covering any particular service application in detail but rather focus on the core infrastructure plumbing. It is intended primarily for architects and administrators planning their farm topologies, but will also be useful for anyone working with SharePoint 2010. – http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010sa2.aspx
