Database Modernisation

Avoid end-of-support headaches and improve security by moving your SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 infrastructure into Microsoft Azure.

Migrate your database to the cloud

Extended support for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is ending. By moving to Microsoft Azure-based versions you get three extra years of additional extended support, keeping your systems safe for longer. Now is the time to transition your on-premises SQL Server databases to the cloud.

Key features

Cobweb’s Database Modernisation service moves your SQL Server database to Microsoft’s Azure cloud, offering several key features that will help keep your data architecture running smoothly and efficiently.

Cloud infrastructure

Eliminate on-site infrastructure costs by using cloud-based hardware and shifting from a capital cost model to a regular operational expense.

High availability

You need your data ready and available at all times. Cobweb’s database modernisation service brings you the benefit of an always-on, highly available cloud environment.

Unlimited capacity

In the cloud, no one ever runs out of room. Enjoy a scalable storage service that expands with the needs of your business.

Modern infrastructure

Obsolete infrastructure that reaches the end of its support cycle is no longer an issue with a cloud-based system that keeps your database current.

Secure systems

Ensure that your database gets all the latest security patches and protections with a managed cloud-based system that keeps your data safe.

Optimise your IT infrastructure

To enable organisations to keep up with business competition, processes and IT services need to be as efficient and cost-effective as possible.

Cobweb’s Database Modernisation service

Using industry best practice and more than 20 years’ experience helping customers move to the cloud, Cobweb’s cloud experts will work in partnership with your team to assess, migrate to and optimise your existing IT infrastructure in the Microsoft Azure cloud. We look after your database modernisation in four stages:


Cobweb’s database modernisation team takes the time to understand your business transformation goals. Then, we review your existing IT infrastructure and applications to evaluate migration readiness before creating a road map for your project. We are experts at designing cloud solutions that support your business goals.


Based on our assessment, we will either move your database infrastructure directly to the cloud with minimal changes, or where possible move to cloud-native solutions that drive scalability and cost efficiency gains.


No matter what the migration approach, we take pains to optimise your database’s performance in the cloud and put security and management tools in place to keep your data safe. We also analyse and monitor your cloud expenditure and usage patterns to ensure that you’re getting the best deal.


We offer a range of optional post-migration services, including SQL database server monitoring, reactive support, and security and patch management so that you don’t have to worry about the performance and safety of your data in the cloud.
