Planning an Effective Upgrade from SQL Server 2008

Planning an Effective Upgrade from SQL Server 2008The end of Extended Support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008R2 is coming faster than you know, as of July 2019. It’s important that your organization takes the necessary steps so you’re prepared for the migration.

A database migration is not always straightforward and requires preparation, testing and implementation and these processes could take up to 9 months depending on environment size.

In this webinar, Jeff Duncan will discuss the steps that you need to ensure that you have the smoothest migration to the SQL Server 2016 and beyond.

Below is a preview of the webinar transcript.

I’ve done approximately a thousand SQL Server installs and upgrades, which sounds when you try to enumerate it, it sounds a little bit unbelievable, but I’ll admit to this. 375 of those were done at one time with a remote upgrade from SQL 6.5 years ago. I’m still counting it, but anyway, that helps make up some of the thousand upgrades and installs that I’ve done, but hopefully, we’re able to put together some good information for you so that way, you can make some good, educated decisions to bring back your businesses regarding if you need to upgrade from SQL 2008 or perhaps maybe you’re just joining because you want to see something about some of the new features that are available in some of the newer versions of SQL Server. We can go ahead and get started. Hopefully, you can see the slides.
