Execution of Projects and Packages

To run an Integration Services package, you can use one of several tools depending on where those packages are stored. The tools are listed in the table below.

To store a package on the Integration Services server, you use the project deployment model to deploy the project to the server. For information, see Deploy Projects to Integration Services Server.

To store a package in the SSIS Package store, the msdb database, or in the file system, you use the package deployment model. For more information, see Package Deployment (SSIS).
