2008 & today are a world apart...
SQL Server and Windows Server 2008 weren’t designed for this new world. They were designed for a time when business priorities and processes were way more scaled down – back when the job of an operating system was to manage and simplify, not to fuel game-changing innovation. This is why Microsoft are about to end support for SQL Server and Windows Server 2008 – the last 32-bit Windows server operating system. The two products just aren’t an appropriate foundation for achieving what your business needs to achieve today.

There are five options from which you can choose, and each has a different impacts on your business...
