SQL Server 2000 End of Life

SQL Server 2000 End of Life

Next week marks a significant mile-stone in the support policy of Microsoft SQL Server 2000. From the 9th of April 2013 Extended Support for SQL Server 2000 will come to an end, and SQL Server 2000 will no longer be supported by Microsoft. To find out more about the Microsoft Support Lifecycle refer to here.

What are your Options?

If you are still running Microsoft SQL Server 2000 your options are:

  • Upgrade to a supported version of SQL Server
  • Run SQL Server 2000 unsupported (not recommended)

If you’re planning to upgrade to a modern database environment, take the first tangible step in moving your SQL Servers to the cloud by signing up for Azure Illuminate, a program that will allow you to establish a meaningful presence for your SQL Server environment in Microsoft Azure without needing to perform a full cloud migration.

For a limited time, WARDY IT Solutions can give you access to up to $50,000 funding to assist with your Azure Illuminate implementation. Schedule a chat with one of our Microsoft Data Platform consultants, to see if you’re eligible to receive a contribution, to reduce your upfront migration costs.
