Support for SQL Server 2008/R2 and Windows Server 2008/R2 comes to an end.

Aleson ITC can help your company with this change without your business being affected.

Reasons to update your platform

Get ready for the end of support of SQL Server 2008/R2 and Windows Server 2008/R2

As of July 9, 2019, Microsoft will no longer support servers that still have the 2008 and 2008 R2 versions of SQL Server, and as of January 14, 2020, Windows Server 2008/R2 support will also finish.


How does it affect our company to continue in SQL Server 2008/R2?

  1. Microsoft will NOT address incidents on these platforms, although the contract remains in force.
  2. Microsoft will NOT post security patches or updates for these platforms.
  3. By NOT having access to updates, companies will be exposed to new exploits and great risks of data loss.
  4. SQL Server 2008/R2 does NOT meet the requirements of the GDPR or other international data protection systems.
  5. By not meeting the requirements of the GDPR, the company could face fines of up to € 400,000.

Innovation opportunities

  • Reduction of the TCO (Total Cost Ownership), double the level of operation. By using less hardware resources we can reuse the release of those resources for other purposes.
  • Performance improvement: New SQL Server engines achieve higher performance dues with the use of fewer resources and new features such as in-memory data.
  • Scalability: The new versions allow integration with big data systems and support hybrid implementations with the cloud.
  • GDPR Compliance: Avoid data leakage and theft, through the creation of techniques on SQL Server to comply with regulations.
  • Microsoft will help customers in their updates or migrations to the cloud and will offer their support for the solution of possible problems.
