Windows SQL Server - End of Support
An Important Message from Microsoft:
Windows SQL Server 2005 extended support ends on April 12, 2016. Start planning now with help from Microsoft.
As a part of normal product lifecycles and to accommodate modern technology and mobility, Microsoft will completely end support for Windows SQL Server 2005 on April 12, 2016. Security patches and updates will no longer be available after this date which means your business critical data could be at risk. Also, it is important to understand that there may be regulatory compliance concerns for your organization without migrating to a supported technology such as Windows SQL Server 2014 or Azure SQL Database.
This is a serious event and Microsoft encourages all businesses to carefully evaluate a migration plan.
