Windows Server 2008/SQL Server 2008 End of Life Planning Session, eBECS Swindon

Fri, 22, Mar, 2019 10:00AM - 14:00PM GMT

As of July 2019, Microsoft will no longer be supporting SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2, along with Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 on 14th January 2020.

Join us for a 1-day session to help you plan your migration to an updated platform.

Your end-of-support challenge begins now. Our specialist Cloud team at eBECS can provide expert guidance on the most optimal upgrade route for your organisation.

With the support termination of Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008, you will no longer receive regular security updates, leaving your infrastructure and applications unprotected. In this workshop, eBECS will guide you towards migrating to current versions for greater security, performance and innovation.

Our Cloud team will advise you how to analyse your workloads to determine the best path for migration. Learn how to fine tune your resources and optimise costs and strengthen security and compliance across hybrid cloud workloads.

New options are now available to help you upgrade and adopt the innovative technologies you need to carry your organisation into the future:

Migrate to Microsoft Azure with free security updates

  • Rehost Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 workloads to Azure
  • Get three years of Extended Security Updates at no additional charge, and upgrade to a current version when ready.
  • Use existing licenses and save up to 80% on Azure Virtual Machines with Azure Hybrid Benefit and Reserved Instances.

This training course will teach you how you can modernise your database(s), explore the new options and understand how you can pay less by moving to Azure.
