Editions of Reporting Services

SSRS comes in four editions, which mirror the editions of SQL Server and Visual Studio. These editions range from free starter editions to full-scale Enterprise editions.

Chapter 5, "Reporting Services Deployment Scenarios," has more information about the different editions and supported features. Table 1.3 offers a high-level overview of the different editions of SSRS.

Table 1.3. Overview of SSRS Editions


Quick Overview


Express Edition offers a lightweight edition of SSRS for developers who want to learn how to use SSRS.


Workgroup is for use in small departmental organizations or branch offices. Should the need arise, Workgroup Edition can be upgraded to Standard or Enterprise editions.


Standard Edition is for use in small- to medium-sized organizations or in a single-server environment. Standard Edition supports all the features of SSRS, except highly specialized data-driven subscriptions, and infinite drill down through Report Builder.


Enterprise Edition is for use in large organizations with complex database and reporting needs. Enterprise Edition is fully functional, and supports scale-out functionality across a web farm.


Developer Edition is essentially the same as Enterprise Edition, but has different licensing requirements to make it easy for people to develop enterprise applications. Developer Edition is licensed per developer in development (nonproduction) environments.
