Say bye to SQL 2005 cause Microsoft is now pulling the plug on support and then you will be on your won. If you are not running Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2014 yet, it’s time to consider upgrading to take advantage of groundbreaking improvements in performance. Microsoft has ended the support for SQL 2005 from April 12, 2016 which means no more security updates, increased maintenance costs, and potential compliance concerns.
If you haven’t done the migration, it time to migrate asap. At Synergy IT Solutions, we can help you move your applications and workloads that currently rely on Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2005 or 2008 to Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2014 or Microsoft Azure SQL Database.
Why Upgrade to SQL 2014?
Significantly improved performance. Benchmarks show SQL Server 2014 performs 13x faster than SQL Server 2005 and 5.5x faster than SQL Server 2008.*
• Additional performance gains from in-memory technologies for OLTP, data warehousing, and analytics.
• Simplified updating and maintenance as well as more online processes.
• Easier than ever high-availability.
