White paper: eBook: SQL Server Upgrade Checklist

Microsoft ends the extended support of SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 on July 2019. With the deadline rapidly approaching, upgrading your legacy SQL Server workloads as soon as possible is crucial. Thanks to our experience with prior customers, we’ve determined that up to 80% of SQL Server 2008 instances can upgrade directly to SQL Server 2017 with no application changes. Moreover, we created a SQL Server upgrade checklist, which is based on the best practices that we discovered from these customer’s projects.

Rather than wait, we at DB Best advise you to upgrade these servers ASAP. This will help you take  advantage of the improved performance, security, high availability, and cloud capabilities of SQL Server 2017.

Check out our eBook to learn more about the SQL Server upgrade checklist.
