How to Avoid Security, Availability and Cost Risks, as well as Regulations Noncompliance in the Face of the Looming Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 End-of-Life


Fort Collins, CO | July 24, 2018

DH2i®, the leading provider of multi-platform Smart Availability™, disaster recovery (DR) and cost improvement solutions for Windows, Linux and Oracle databases and Docker containers, today announced it will present a live webinar entitled, “How to Optimize Your SQL Server 2008 / R2 Migration for Cost and Availability.”


Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time / 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time

Why Attend:

Microsoft extended support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ends on July 9, 2019. This means that in about a year, Microsoft will no longer provide any support or security hotfixes for these versions. Failing to upgrade prior to the deadline can leave you vulnerable to regulatory noncompliance as well as place the security of your systems at significant risk. With the end of support quickly approaching, upgrading from 2008/R2 to a newer version of SQL Server is both necessary and imminent. But will your migration plan land you in an environment that is optimized for both cost and availability?  Attendees of this live webinar will learn how to leverage DH2i’s DxEnterprise to migrate off of SQL Server 2008/R2 and into an optimized environment that gets them:

  • The highest level of availability—on any version
  • Fewer cores subject to the upgrade
  • 3+ node clusters on any edition
  • Less disruptive upgrades, both now and ongoing
