Service applications, services, and components that serve user requests directly are placed on front-end servers.
These servers are optimized for fast performance.
Service applications, services, and components that process background tasks are placed on a middle-tier of servers referred to as batch processing servers.
These servers are optimized to maximize system resources.
These servers can tolerate greater loads because these tasks do not affect performance observed by users.
Guidance for deploying database servers remains the same.
In a small farm, server roles can be combined on one or two servers.
For example, front-end services and batch-processing services can be combined on a single server or on two or more servers to achieve redundancy.
