SQL Server 2008 Support

SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 are due to go out of extended support in July 2019. However, Microsoft recently announced that customers can continue to receive security updates if they migrate to Azure.

Organisations running unsupported platforms are at risk of being non-compliant with some industry regulations and standards, such as GDPR and PCI DSS.

At Coeo we have found that around 25% of the server estate that we support is currently running on 2008 R2 or earlier.


Coeo's offer 

We are offering organisations a free initial assessment to determine if they have servers that will be affected, and advise on the best course of action to take.

If an organisation then decides to purchase a Dedicated Support package, they will not incur any project costs.
