End of support for SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2
Saft Planning Project


We would like to remind all customers that Microsoft has ended Extended Support for SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 from 9th July 2019. Microsoft has ended support for these products as part of their Support Lifecycle policy.

By remaining on these versions, you will no longer receive:

  • Free security updates on-premises
  • Non-security updates
  • Free support options
  • Online technical content updates

Another critical date looming is 14th January 2020. Microsoft will end all support for Windows Server 2008 R2. If you are still running Windows Server 2008 R2, the time to start planning is now.

Any customers who are on these versions are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible. Upgrading to the current SQL Server version ensures that you remain supported by Microsoft.

All sofco versions are fully compatible with all the latest Microsoft Versions.

Please contact your support team at sofco for any advice and guidance.
