Windows Server 2008 & SQL Server 2008 End of Life Support

Seize the opportunity to modernise your IT

Support for Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 / R2 is ending – let us help you to modernise your IT and optimise your apps and workloads.

It’s time for change. Microsoft is ending support for
Windows Server and SQL Server 2008.


Migrate to managed Microsoft Azure or Azure Stack

The time has come to move away from Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 / 2008 R2. As of 2020 and 2019 respectively, Microsoft is no longer offering support for these platforms. Without this support you run the risk of cyber attacks, becoming non-compliant with relevant legislation, and investing significant amounts of money into maintaining outdated technology.
