Focus more on your organisation and spend less time worrying about maintenance, with hassle-free upgrades that save time and optimise costs.
Support from Microsoft for Windows Server 2008 R2 ended on 14 January 2020, while SQL Server 2008 R2 support ended over a year ago on 9 July 2019. After this time you may be finding maintenance costs quickly spiralling with the need to continually manage your aging hardware. In addition, if your organisation is growing or has fluctuating capacity needs (who hasn’t had this recently), you need the kind of flexibility that allows you to scale IT resources up or down quickly – and cost-effectively.
Now is the time to use Windows Server and SQL Server end of support as an opportunity to modernise your application stack and optimise costs. Migrate your SQL Server and Windows Server 2008 to Azure to take advantage of intelligent security, seamless hybrid capabilities and unique cost savings options.
