Cloud Migration Blog
In the coming months Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for Windows Server & SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2:
- 9th July 2019: Extended Support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end
- 14th January 2020: Extended Support for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end
With cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated and frequent, running apps and data on unsupported versions can create significant security and compliance risks. Whist the ramifications of ignoring end of support may be steep, it is a great opportunity to transform your applications and infrastructure to take advantage of cloud computing and the latest versions of SQL Server and Windows Server.
