SQL Server 2008 EOL

Rapid SQL 2008 Migration

SQL Server 2008 EOL: Come July 2019, SQL Server 2008 will no longer be covered by Extended Support. This means no security updates, less compliance and likely increased maintenance costs . The need to adapt to this change is why DSP created SQL Server 2008 Bitesize, a quick win package of services designed to help you to kickstart your modernisation plans with best practice support when you need it. Typical options for those organisations still running SQL Server 2008 are:

  • Migrate SQL Server 2008 to Azure with a simple "Lift n Shift"
  • Modernise their platform with SQL Managed Instance,
  • Upgrade to SQL Server 2017 on-premise. Migrate later.

Assess | Deploy | Optimise

Through this methodology and our SQL Server 2008 EOL service we'll review your current SQL database estate, deploy a POC to help you establish value and then deliver a modernisation plan for the rest of your estate.

Get in touch today and we'll discuss how this approach has already helped many organisations like yours plan for SQL Server 2008 EOL.
