Why should you upgrade your databases?

It’s important to note that although security threats are an important driver behind upgrading your SQL Server database, it’s not the only one… Companies who decide not to upgrade regularly often miss out on enhanced features, suffer from poor application performance and generally have to pay more technical support.

  • Security fixes
  • Enhanced features
  • Resolved bugs and other issues
  • Reduced costs

Receive Two Powerful Reports

Your Health Check results will be presented in an easily readable format: we have developed a two-stage report that provides a brief, readable overview for non-technical project managers, as well as a comprehensive breakdown of each individual database and our suggestions for optimising them in technical terms.

The Importance of Patching

We understand that you cannot always upgrade your database to the newest version immediately for a variety of reasons. However, when you have not upgraded you can be left more exposed to security threats and bugs which is why regular patching is key to help protect your business. Patching is therefore instrumental in helping to keep your SQL Server optimised and consequently help your business operate efficiently.
