Extend support for SQL Server and Windows Server by moving to Azure

Have you got a migration plan in place for customers still running SQL Server R2 and Windows Server 2008?

With Microsoft ending support for SQL Server R2 and Windows Server 2008 imminently, many customers will be affected and have real concerns about the critical applications they are running on these platforms.

Migrate to Azure and extend security support for another three years

By migrating these on-premises platforms as virtual machines straight to Azure, customers can ensure business continuity with an extended 3 years of free security updates after support ends. This time will be invaluable for customers to develop a longer-term plan for a seamless transition to a modern platform.

As unsupported, unpatched platforms present a huge risk, even incurring fines under GDPR, doing nothing is not an option for most customers. Arrow offers migration services to support partners and customers in moving critical applications and workloads, with minimal disruption. 

Don’t let your customers put their critical applications at risk with the end of support for SQL Server and Windows Server.
