Protect Your Business: Migrate to Microsoft Azure
Over the past decade, SQL Server 2008 has become a trusted name in database platforms while serving countless business transactions across the globe. Odds are, you are probably running critical applications that still rely on SQL Server 2008—but the platform’s time is running out.
On July 9, 2019, Microsoft will end extended support for SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2; after this date, the platform will no longer receive regular security updates. This end of support not only makes you more vulnerable to security breaches, but also makes you vulnerable to the irreparable harm that a security breach can cause—like customer loss, loss of trust, compliance requirement breaches and more.
As SQL Server 2008’s end-of-life transition approaches—and companies continue to adopt a cloud-first approach—now’s the time to be proactive and mitigate these risks by migrating to cloud-based Azure. Now sure how to get started? Here’s how AgileThought can help:
