SQL to Azure Migration
Migration. Management. Easy.
As you likely know, support for SQL Server 2008 and SQL 2008 R2 workloads — including security updates — are coming to an end July 2019. Now is the time to start planning your migration to the cloud.
Navisite can help you move from SQL to Azure to ensure you remain secure and compliant, and help you realize all the advantages of the advanced solution.
A Complete Plan
As a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP, Navisite has managed hundreds of SQL databases around the globe. Leveraging this experience, we’ll provide a complete SQL-to-Azure migration plan that includes inventory and assessments with dependency mapping. We’ll then work with your team to transform the database, complete the migration and then validate and optimise your Azure SQL solution.
You may be wondering whether you’ll be ready for the SQL end-of-support deadline. At Navisite, we’ve got you covered with flexible choices that buy you time. We’ll work with you to migrate applications running on SQL 2008 and 2008 R2 workloads as they are, with extended security updates to keep them protected. Then when you’re ready, we’ll help you update and modernize those applications in the cloud. Our Azure SQL Database Managed Instance also offers a version-free option so you only have to transition to the cloud once.
License to Save
During your transition from SQL to Azure, we focus on strategies to keep disruption to a minimum and your costs down. That includes using an Azure Hybrid option combining on-premises and cloud-based applications that can save you up to 55% on your on-premises licenses, while staging your migration for an easier transition.
Security and Compliance
Security is a top concern for SQL 2008/2008 R2 users. That’s why we offer free extended security updates for three years beyond the end-of-support deadline. Our certified Azure specialists also supplement Azure’s built-in security features for robust protection, and help you comply with stringent privacy regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR.
Business as Usual
Business continuity requires more than simple backups. As part of your SQL-to-Azure Managed Services, we’ll help you develop a robust disaster recovery plan that includes replication, testing, and validation of your environment. With our network of 140+ Azure data centers, your Azure solution remains available and secure. And with 24/7/365 proactive monitoring, we’ll identify and address issues before they impact you. What’s more, these claims are backed by a 99.99% uptime SLA guarantee.
