Installation of SQL Server and Management Studio

Structured Query Language Server (SQL) installation can be done in two ways ; by running the entire process on the local host without other SQL Server resources and by Installation via configuration files. Whichever method you will prefer depends solely on you. However we will be dealing with the two installations in this artifact.
