Windows 10 Breaking News

You may have heard it first when I blogged about Microsoft’s recent announcement which indicated that they would effectively pull the plug on Windows 7 and 8/8.1 support for 6th Gen and higher processors after July 2017. In an effort to get this word out quickly we emailed, posted to our blog, and even recorded a video. Our commitment has been ongoing, and we have been busy talking to customers and gathering feedback for Microsoft. We found that many of our customers felt this change had a negative impact and put a severe crimp in already strained IT budgets and plans. It appears Microsoft has heard the feedback and announced the cutoff date has been extended to July 17, 2018. Here’s what it all means.

Microsoft SQL Server

Life After "SQL-mageddon"

Prepare for Your Migration in Four Steps

by Lane Shelton | 03.10.16

With the official end of life looming (RIP, April 12, 2016) for the up to 2 million-plus servers running some form of Microsoft’s popular relational database management system, SQL Server 2005, putting in place a migration plan is not optional—it’s a must. For most, staying with Microsoft represents the least painful alternative, although this is not without its challenges. In addition to the current successor, SQL Server 2014, other options include SQL Server 2012, the eventually-to-be-released SQL Server 2016 or Azure SQL Database (cloud). Read on for the four steps to a successful SQL migration that should be top of mind.
