To return the parent database service of a database service instance, use the inherited Service property of the SPDatabaseServiceInstance class.

Use the SPDatabaseServiceCollection constructor to return the collection of database services that are running in a server farm. Use an indexer to return a single database service from the collection. For example, if the collection is assigned to a variable named myDatabaseServices, use myDatabaseServices[index] in C#, or myDatabaseServices(index) in Visual Basic, where index is either the name or the GUID that identifies the database service.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
