Data mining / Warehouse

Hi,

We want to create one Report Server for accessing the reports related to Finance, Operations & Business.
Current our database is in SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition.

How do we make the report server
How to transfer the data to report server
Data to be transferred on daily basis but incremental data only. If there is any change in row or table then only the data will migrate or update in report server

We want the solution in Microsoft platform.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are so many ways.
And I don't think you want a report server. It should be a Data Warehouse instead?
Data can be migrated incrementally but you need to define the increment method (a date field? a flag? data export to files? partitioning data? other?).

With that said, you didn't give many detail but an overview of your case so we can't provide an assertive answer.

Our objective is to seperate our reports relates to Operations, Billing, Business to generate from other DB server to decrease the load on our OLTP server.


What would be the best solution for the same.

As I said, there are many options but being an old SQL Server version, I can see 2 fast solutions:
  1. Replicate a copy of the database to another server and point your reports to run over the new server
  2. Use SQL Server Resource Governor to limit the resource usages when an user runs a report. This way the report will run slower but won't affect the other regular OLTP transactions.

We want to transfer the data from our database server to another database server and create the reports on that new database server.

How can we proceed and what is the best solution. Incremental data/any update happenned to be update on new server on daily basis.

If you don't have cost limitations, the AlwaysOn it's the best option.
You don't even need to set any kind of incremental replication as AlwaysOn will take care of the data replication and you'll have always an exact copy of the Production environment. You'll just need to configure the Secondary Replica to allow read-only access and then use the Listener in your Reports to assure that they connect to the Secondary Replica.
