Planning for Deployment
Deploying a Reporting Services in a production environment requires an assessment of user requirements, the volume of report activity that you need to support, and an understanding of how the server and reports will be accessed. Once you know the objectives that your Reporting Services installation must support, you can make decisions about deployment models and the amount of disk space that you must allocate to the report server database. To simplify the deployment process, this section provides checklists that describe the sequence of tasks that must be performed in order to complete a deployment. This section also contains information for users who are planning to deploy Reporting Services in a multilingual environment.
