Extended Support for SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 with Microsoft Azure

Thu, 24, Oct, 2019

Join us for this essential webinar and learn how to extend support for SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 for three more years after the support deadlines.

What’s happening and what’s the risk?
Extended Support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ends on July 9, 2019, and Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end on January 14, 2020.

End of support signals the end of regular security updates, and with more sophisticated and frequent attacks on the rise, applications and data on unsupported software versions present significant security and compliance risks.

Gain more time to plan your future path
The end of support announcement 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. That’s because Extended Security Updates are available for free in Microsoft Azure for 2008 and 2008 R2 versions of SQL Server and Windows Server to help secure your workloads for three more years after the end of support deadline.

What we’ll cover in this webinar
• The End of Life announcement and what it means
• What are my options – how will I maintain and protect my applications?
• What does Microsoft Azure have to offer?
• How can DXC Technology and eBECS help me?

We will explore options to migrate and re-host your workloads to Azure with no application code change, giving you more time to plan your future path. We’ll also look at options for upgrading or re-factoring to newer versions such as SQL Server 2017 or Windows Server 2016 and utilising the rich set of platform and data services available in Azure.

Who is this webinar for?
This webinar is for key IT infrastructure and upgrade decision makers including senior IT professionals such as IT Director, Head of IT and Head of Infrastructure, as well as those concerned with IT and data security.
