Achieve Mission Critical Performance with SQL Database Migration Services

Mainstream support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 ended in April 2011 and it has been on extended support since then, which is due to end in April 2016. For organizations that are yet to upgrade, the end of extended support could translate into direct impact on the infrastructure and on the business in terms of:

  • Lack of security updates
  • Higher maintenance costs
  • Compliance concerns
