7 Valuable Tips For Upgrading Your Microsoft SQL Server

By | SQL Server Tips
  Microsoft SQL Server 2008 is nearing the end of its extended service period. If you are still using 2008 or 2008 R2, it’s time to get off now. Or maybe you have 2012 or 2014, but want to take advantage of the most up to date processes and security features. It can be a daunting task to think about upgrading your SQL servers. There are so many pieces to juggle. If you’ve been putting it off, I don’t blame you. But with the speed of innovation, it’s important to stay up to date and ahead of trends. So today we’re talking about some things to keep in mind when you upgrade your SQL Server. Check Compatibility – If you are currently running SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012 (11.x), SQL Server 2014 (12.x), or SQL Server 2016 (13.x) then you can upgrade directly to SQL Server 2017, assuming the same platform specifications.

Expanding the Market: MS SQL Server 2017 and Linux

By | Blog, Database Technology Trends, SQL Server
Microsoft’s exciting cross-platform product, SQL Server 2017, is poised to reach a whole new audience. Recently this industry leader has joined the growing trend of support for open source solutions.  Our team is continually investigating new innovations for our clients, and we wanted to share what we have discovered about new features and performance.

By | Blog, Preserved Content Pages | No Comments
Database Migration in the Real World   The Database Migration Process Moving your data from one database to another can seem like a simple task in the beginning, but it can get very complicated very quickly as you dig into the processes and systems. Creating a plan and diligently following that plan is imperative to a successful database migration.
