Hardware and Software Requirements for Reporting Services in SharePoint Mode

This topic describes prerequisites, hardware requirements, and installation considerations for SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services running in SharePoint mode. Because Reporting Services SharePoint mode requires a SharePoint server, most of the requirements are based on the SharePoint environment. For native mode report servers, your hardware should meet minimum hardware and software requirements for running SQL Server 2014. For more information, see Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2014.

Report Server Database Requirements

  • Both Reporting Services and SharePoint products and technologies use SQL Server relational databases to store application data.

  • SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services (SSRS) requires an instance of the SQL Server Database Engine of a compatible SQL Server edition. For more information on hardware and software requirements, see Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2014.

  • SharePoint products can use an existing database instance. If an instance of Database Engine is not installed, the SharePoint Products Setup program installs SQL Server Express Edition for the SharePoint application databases.

  • The report server instance cannot use the SQL Server Express Edition for its database. However, the SQL Server Express Edition instance installed by the SharePoint product can exist side-by-side with other Database Engine editions.
