SQL Server 2008 and R2 is history!

In my timezone it’s july 9th 2019, the end of the road for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2.

You need to be on 2012 or higher if you want support from Microsoft.

Does it stop working? No, it will run fine. The fact that it’s end of life and out of support doesn’t mean you can get your hands on Enterprise edition and use it for free.

What you should do, or should have done alreade, is migrate to SQL Server 2017. It’s much better, supported for a long time and there are so many gains for your support crew.

Goodbye 2008, and thanks for all the queries!
