Creating a SQL Server on a Local Laptop

I have MS SQL 2014 Management Studio installed on a laptop and it is currently used to connect to a number of SQL Server that do not reside on the local laptop.  How can I get a local Server/Database set up on the local laptop so that SQL does not have to necessarily connect to the other SQL Servers?

You have just to install SQL-Server on your laptop. You can use SQL-Server Express edition which has a free licence. You can download it from here:

After installed, you then just to ensure that its service is started and access to it by using localhost as server name and the correct user and password.

Hope it helps. Regards!

Do you have a local SQL Server installed in your laptop? If so you just need to register it in your SSMS.
