Hi hudavercetin,

Core components of SSRS are as follows:

Report Server - It is the heart of SSRS which interacts with other components and plays key role in processing of data, deploying etc…

Report Server database - Two databases called reportserver and reportservertempdb which stores the reports definition data.

Report Designer - To create, modify and deploy the SSRS reports.

Report Builder - To create ad hoc reports. We can access report builder in report manager.

Report Manager - Web based application which allow us to view the data and manages the reports by interacting with Report server web service.

Data sources - Reporting services retrieves data from data sources like relational and multidimensional data sources.
