Microsoft gives us options for SQL Server 2008 / 2008 R2 End of Support


If your business has a legacy application that uses SQL 2008 or 2008 R2 and you have a constraint that won’t allow you to upgrade, you will most likely be all too aware that extended support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end on July 9, 2019.

Microsoft have announced a potential solution that may allow you to sleep easy at night (well for another three years anyway), they have announced that if you move your SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2 server to a Azure Virtual Machine Microsoft will provide Extended Security Updates to help secure your workloads for three more years after the end of support deadline.

If you would like to know more or would like some assistance upgrading or migrating your SQL 2008 or SQL 2008 R2 instances give us a call -
