Having 3 layers, like 3 tire architecture

1. WFE <Front End Web Server>
2. Application Layer
3. Data base Layer

1. WFE :-
Here we have share point Installed.
We have 12-hive structure & virtual drives.
Here IIS web sites are hosted.
Here servers are clustered on & are in synch.

2. Application Lay er:-
Share Point provides different services.
This layer provides those services, like my site hosting, user profile & searching etc.
One server can be dedicated to particular service depend upon the scalability.

3. Data Base Layer :-
Here we have SQL server installed.
