Extended support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 will be coming to an end April 2016. While it is possible to purchase further support, many users may find it costly to remain on SQL Server 2005 compared to performing an upgrade.

To help users make an informed decision Pythian Principal Consultant, Microsoft MCM and MVP, Warner Chaves, provides a demo on how to plan a zero downtime upgrade as well as how perform a SQL Server 2005 upgrade to SQL Server 2014.

Warner also highlights some of the most important features in the later versions of SQL Server to help you:

  •       Achieve mission critical performance
  •       Maintain security and compliance
  •       Optimize your data infrastructure
