With cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated and frequent, running apps and data on unsupported versions can create significant security and compliance risks. Nobody wants to put their company at risk of a security breach or failing compliance regulations, but trying to figure out the best course of action is overwhelming. You know that the ramifications of ignoring end-of-support are steep, but how do you determine which option(s) are best for you: upgrade, migrate or both?
Join managed IT services experts from Scottsdale-based AccountabilIT on #TechTuesday, July 30, as they outline the best options and discuss the pros and cons of upgrading or continuing with your existing infrastructure.
Once the Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008, and SQL Server 2008 R2 systems reach their fast-approaching, end-of-support dates, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates leaving your infrastructure vulnerable to security attacks and out of compliance with business and industry regulations.
The ending of support for Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008, and SQL Server 2008 R2 systems does not need to be scary. Knowing your options and coming up with your own SQL Server 2008 end-of-life strategy is your first step.
1. Learn how your systems can become vulnerable to a cyber attack after end of support.
2. Learn what end of support means for maintaining compliance regulations.
3. Steps to modernize your stack by accelerating your migration to Azure or upgrading your servers.
