Does your business still depend on SQL Server 2008? If so, July the 9th is a date to remember, that’s when support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end forever, but this could be an opportunity to modernise. 71% of organisations cite legacy infrastructure as the biggest barrier to digital transformation.
Microsoft’s latest software platforms, Windows Server 2019, and SQL Server 2017, have both been optimised for the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors family, delivering 5x performance gains over 5-year-old servers.
Windows Server 2019 supports the new Intel® Optane™ data centre persistent memory, delivering 4x to 16x more memory over previous-generation servers. Combined, these new Microsoft offerings aim to deliver higher performance, enhanced security, and software-defined computer, storage, and networking.
Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors family are workload-optimised to support today’s hybrid-IT implementations. They contain Intel’s built-in features, including Advanced Vector Extension 512 for optimised performance, QuickAssist Technology for accelerating critical workloads, and hardware-based security.
