The guide to how SQL Server 2008 end-of-service can drive IT modernization.
End-of-service presents serious risks to your organisation if you don’t deal with it correctly—or worse—if you don’t deal with it at all, including the
loss of access to critical security updates and Microsoft hotfixes. Also, if you don’t take action, your organisation will be exposed to potential disruption from hackers and malware. That means valuable customer data could be exposed to attack, risking monetary and reputational damage. And from a regulatory standpoint, there could be compliance issues with rules such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR.
On the other hand, if you take well-considered action that aligns with your long-term strategy, end-of-service is also an opportunity for data estate
In this e-book, we’ll discuss how migration to Azure as part of your fix for SQL Server 2008 end-of-service solves for all these, and opens doors for the future of your data-driven business.

Amazon Web Services has a long history of successfully supporting Microsoft workloads, with hundreds of thousands of customers across a wide variety of industries running their Microsoft workloads on AWS. Customers have successfully deployed virtually every Microsoft application available on the AWS Cloud, including (but not limited to) Microsoft Office, Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SharePoint Server, Microsoft Skype for Business, Microsoft Dynamics products, and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. This guide covers the benefits of moving Microsoft workloads to the Cloud and how to get started.
Azure Site Recovery replicates your on-premises physical servers and virtual machines to Azure. If an outage occurs in your primary
location, you failover to the DRaaS platform within minutes and your applications and workloads will be available. When normal operations resume, you can failback to your primary location.
For added reassurance, Cloud Direct is a Microsoft Gold Partner. This means in addition to our own 24/7 support, we also benefit from direct access to Microsoft support for a range of hosting scenarios – including SQL Server, Exchange and SharePoint.

You’ve probably heard about NoSQL, and you may wonder what it is. NoSQL represents a fundamental change in the way people think about storing and accessing data, especially now that most of the information generated is unstructured or semi-structured data — something for which existing database systems such as Oracle, MySQL, SQLServer, and Postgres aren’t well suited. NoSQL means a release from the constraints imposed on database management systems by the relational database model.
This free eBook, Enterprise NoSQL for Dummies, MarkLogic Special Edition, provides an overview of NoSQL. You’ll start to understand what it is, what it isn’t, when you should consider using a NoSQL database instead of a relational database management system and when you may want to use both. In addition, this book introduces enterprise NoSQL and shows how it differs from other NoSQL systems, as well as explains when NoSQL may not be the right solution for your data storage problem. You’ll also learn the NoSQ

Countless companies want to take advantage of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and its notable business and technology benefits. However, with the prevalence of large, complex and sprawling information technology (IT) infrastructures, many organizations are wary of - or avoid altogether - the time, expense and effort required for a mass overhaul of their database environment.
The success of SQL Server in recent years has produced a phenomenon of SQL Server sprawl - the uncoordinated deployment of tens, hundreds or even thousands of database servers. The result has been low levels of utilization, poor availability and, most importantly, an enormous management burden inflicted on many IT departments. There is an acute need for a way to deploy SQL Server that allows capacity to be matched appropriately to need, that provides high availability without introducing extra complexity and extra cost, and that actually simplifies the life of administrators.
