Reporting Server Recommendations
If you intend to deploy Reporting Server in partitioning mode to optimize a high-performance environment, you must ensure you are using a supported operating system. Before you deploy the Reporting Server, consider the information below.
Reporting Server Modes
All versions of Microsoft SQL Server are supported on Windows only. Reporting Server can be installed on Linux, however, the database must be installed off-board on a separate Windows host.
|Reporting Server mode||Supported operating systems|
|partitioning mode||Oracle 10g or 11g Enterprise Edition|
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition
|Oracle 10g or 11g Standard Edition|
Oracle 10g or 11g Enterprise Edition
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or 2008 Standard Edition
Reporting Server Performance in Different Modes
The Reporting Server will perform at optimal levels when in partitioning mode. In standard mode, Reporting Server 8.1.3 performance will be below optimal and comparable to Reporting Server 8.1.1 performance, which does not support partitioning. However, Reporting Server 8.1.2 and later releases in partitioning mode are much improved over standard mode Reporting Server 8.1.1 in terms of performance.
