“The move to Office 365 has made a huge difference in terms of productivity and cost. The wide range of communication and collaboration tools has allowed us to concentrate on using our resources more effectively and helped us increase our competitiveness in the market. Hosting our own email would be a real distraction, especially when Cobweb offers a specialist service to do it all, including maintenance and back-up.”

Rob Myles, Director of Technology, REX Features

“We want to keep as much of our IT infrastructure as possible in the Cloud. It’s more cost-effective and Cobweb’s hosting ensures our team can work from anywhere, safely and securely, as well as more productively. Using Skype for Business has enabled us to communicate effectively in real-time. For conference calls, team meetings, solving clients’ queries and supporting them, I’d recommend Cobweb and Skype for Business.”

“Email is a business critical application for all3media but I knew from the start that I would not have the time to deal with the daily hassles and threats from spam, viruses, system failures and backups. Security of our systems is a top priority and I wanted to ensure that the solution we put in place would provide comprehensive protection.”

Damien Frost, IT Director of all3media

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 end of support

Aug 1, 2019, 17:50 PM by Chloe Mustafa
At the heart of many IT infrastructures, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 will becoming increasingly vulnerable with end of support.

SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 have been at the heart of many organisations’ IT infrastructures for the last ten years, and Microsoft ended support for SQL Server 2008 (for both SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2) on 9 July 2019, and will end support for Windows Server 2008 on 14 January 2020.

End of support (EOS) means that Microsoft will no longer provide updates, bug or security fixes (except for some emergency security patches), and so machines running Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 will become increasingly vulnerable.

“If you have SQL Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008, now’s the perfect time to consider moving to the cloud,” says Alex Drake, Cobweb Cloud Solutions Architect. “For example, for businesses now without support for SQL Server 2008, Microsoft is offering three years’ free security updates for SQL Server 2008 database server workloads hosted on Microsoft’s cloud platform, Azure.

“In addition, a move to the cloud, offers many benefits - including:

Increased agility - cloud servers can be easily scaled to cope with increased demand at peak times.

Enhanced security - security is taken care of in the cloud. Cloud services such as those incorporating Azure boast some of the most advanced security technology, so a business can be confident that data is protected.

Lower costs - costs are reduced through, for example, the ability to take advantage of unique cloud offerings, such as paying up front for resources for a one- or three-year period.”

Cobweb’s eBook, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 End of Support: What to do next, covers the options open to businesses, and the support for businesses with SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 available from Cobweb - including details of our Database Modernisation service, created to enable businesses to modernise their on-premises database platform by transitioning to Microsoft Azure.

SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 have been at the heart of many businesses’ IT infrastructures for the last ten years, and with end of support (EOS), Microsoft discontinues support to include provision of updates, bug and security fixes (except for some emergency security patches).


Both server products are found across organisations of all size - presenting at  Microsoft’s partner, inspire, conference in July 2019, Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President Microsoft, said, "We estimate about 60 percent of our server install base is still on Windows Server and SQL Server 2008.”
