Extend your support for SQL Server & Windows Server 2008 with Microsoft Azure cloud

Tue, 11, Jun, 2019 10:30AM - 11:00AM BST

Join us for this essential 30-minute webinar and learn how to extend the support for SQL Server & Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 for three extra years beyond the upcoming support deadlines.

What’s happening, what’s the risk and what’s the opportunity?
There are two important dates coming up:
9 July 2019 – Extended Support ends for SQL Server 2008 & 2008 R2
14 Jan 2020 – Extended Support ends for Windows Server 2008 & 2008 R2

After those dates, you’ll no longer receive security updates. With more sophisticated and frequent attacks on the rise, applications and data on unsupported platforms represent significant security and compliance risks. This is even more relevant with the introduction of GDPR.

Reviewing your use of these ageing technologies also represents an opportunity – an opportunity to see how you could do things better – more effective, less costly and more secure.

Gain more time to plan your future path
A move to the Microsoft Azure cloud would enable your organisation to transform its applications and infrastructure and take advantage of up-to-date versions of SQL Server and Windows Server. With Azure, security updates for both the 2008 and 2008 R2 versions will be extended for a further three years (until July 2022 for SQL Server, January 2023 for Windows Server) to allow you continue to secure your workloads.

What will be covered in this webinar?

  • The end-of-support announcement and what it means to you
  • What are your options? How to maintain and protect your workloads.
    Migrate workloads to Azure with no code change needed
    Upgrading/re-factoring to the later versions of SQL Server or Windows Server
  • What does Microsoft Azure have to offer?
  • How can DXC Technology and eBECS help me?

Who is this webinar for?
This webinar is suitable for those responsible for key IT infrastructure or application/workload upgrades within their organisation, as well as those concerned with IT and data security.
