Webinar: Best Practices for Migrating SQL Server 2008 to Azure
Microsoft announced that Extended Security Updates will be available for free in 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. That means if you are running SQL 2008 or 2008 R2 on-premises today and won’t have time to upgrade before the regular end of life of SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 on July 9th 2019, your best course of action to keep these systems secure would be to migrate those workloads into Azure. Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter MVP David Bermingham discusses best practices for moving standalone and clustered SQL Server 2008 instances into Azure to take advantage of these extended security updates.
