End of Support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2

January 11, 2019

In order to always keep our clients up to date on the latest developments, we would like to make you aware that support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 will end soon.

Indeed, these products will no longer be supported by Microsoft effective July 9, 2019. This means that security updates will no longer be released for these versions, which may lead to security and non-compliance risks for your applications and data. As such, we recommend that you migrate your infrastructure as soon as possible to avoid any risks associated with the use of unsupported products.

Two options are available:

  1. Migrate to SQL Server 2017 as soon as possible. As such a change may affect your various applications that use a database, please keep in mind that this migration needs to be planned properly to ensure software compatibility.
  2. If it is not possible for your organization to migrate on time, subscribe to extended security updates. This will allow you to keep receiving security updates for up to three years. However, this option is only available to organizations that have Software Assurance in effect for SQL Server.

Support for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will also end on January 14, 2020. Please ensure that you get in touch with your infrastructure partner to properly plan for the migration of your servers.

For any additional information, please contact JOVACO or your SQL partner.
