Webinar: Azure SQL
In this Azure SQL webinar we will demo the fundamental values of Azure SQL and discuss the implications of SQL Server 2008 (R2) end of extended support.
We will also cover other platform services like Cosmos DB, Elastic Pools and Data Factory, and how they can be used in conjunction with Azure SQL to create a replacement for traditional SQL Server technologies.
SQL Server 2008 (R2) end of support
Extended support for SQL Server 2008 (R2) will end on 9 July 2019 – that’s just 6 months from now and counting. End of extended support means the end of regular security updates, but it also means it’s a chance to upgrade your applications and infrastructure. Take advantage of the latest versions of SQL Server and the benefits offered by the cloud.
In this webinar we will discuss your options which include migrating to Azure and updating your on-prem deployments to the latest version of SQL Server.
There will be a 15 minute Q&A at the end of the webinar so that you can ask the experts about Azure SQL and SQL Server 2008 (R2) end of support.
