SQL Server 2014 is downloaded and installed the first time you install SixBit (3.0 Versions and up). This is the bare minimum required to run the SQL Server database. SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is an add-on to SQL Server that allows users with some database experience to open and view their databases as well as create reports, stored procedures, etc.

If you are having difficulty sharing databases between two computers, having Management Studio installed can be very helpful for support in diagnosing the problem.
