Reporting Services

Reporting Services is a Web service–based solution for designing, deploying, and managing flexible, dynamic Web-based reports, as well as traditional paper reports. These reports can contain information from virtually any data source.

Because Reporting Services is implemented as a Web service, it must be installed on a server with Internet Information Services (IIS). However, IIS does not have to be installed on a SQL Server. The Reporting Services databases are hosted on SQL Server 2008, but the Web service itself can be configured on a separate server.
