Migrate SQL Server 2008 to Microsoft Azure and Upgrade to Latest Version using MaaS
Microsoft has announced End-of-Life (EOL) support for SQL Server 2008. Migrating the SQL Server and its data is important for Enterprises to ensure the Business Continuity of their operations.
Now you can seamlessly migrate the SQL Server 2008 from on-premises to Microsoft Azure using Corent’s MaaS which extends the life of SQL Server 2008 by another 3 years. Also, you can migrate to the latest version of SQL Server or re-platform it into a PaaS service available on Microsoft Azure using MaaS
How MaaS (Migration as a Service) Helps:
MaaS helps you perform a rapid assessment of SQL Server 2008 (or any later versions) along with its associated applications/servers and provides relevant migration advisories to migrate them to Microsoft Azure. Based on these advisories, re-host your SQL Server and its associated applications as-is to Microsoft Azure using Corent’s MaaS Lift and Shift Capabilities. The same can be accomplished for Windows Server 20081 as well. With this, the existing licenses of these Microsoft Resources can be used to run in Microsoft Azure and save cost.

Alternatively, MaaS Smart Shift Migration helps you to re-architect and migrate your SQL Server 2008 to the latest available SQL Server version on Microsoft Azure
MaaS also has the extended capability to re-platform your SQL Server to Azure SQL Database PaaS service available on Microsoft Azure. It also helps you cut down the effort and cost of ongoing operations and maintenance of SQL Server
In addition, MaaS guarantees that it not only migrates SQL Server, but also migrates its data securely to Microsoft Azure
