SSRS | Reporting Services

Please can someone tell me why SSRS - Reporting Services is not a cluster aware feature? I have search across the internet and I all I can gather is the fact that SSRS is a stateless services and does not support failover. I would appreciate it if someone can shed more light.

By itself, a scale-out deployment does not provide load balancing; it does not detect the processing loads on a report server and route new processing requests to the least busy server. It does not re-route processing requests that failed before completion. To get load balancing features, you must configure load balancing for the Web servers that host the report servers, and then configure the report servers in a scale-out deployment so that they share the same report server database.

The Report Server Web service and Windows service are tightly integrated and run together as a single report server instance. You cannot configure availability for one service separately from the other.
