Microsoft SQL Server Upgrades
Yes.. If so, do you know that one of the benefits of this is that Microsoft will help finance your next software upgrade via its Deployment Planning Service?
No… If your organisation is not a Microsoft SQL Server Software Assurance customer why not consider letting us use our skills to help with your next upgrade anyway?
SSDPS provides in-depth assessment and planning for deploying, upgrading or migrating content to SQL Server. Three separate engagements of varying lengths can help you review architectural considerations and create a detailed migration plan to help you take advantage of higher availability, scalability, security, management, reporting and data analysis, or gain access to accurate, up-to-date information for better, more relevant decision making.
You get a set number of Planning Services days depending on the type and number of licenses you have with Software Assurance. These days can be used for your SQL Server Planning Services engagement, which range from 1 to 15 days in length (see the brochure link below for full details). Obtain your voucher from Microsoft and use it to pay Whistlebrook for our upgrade services.
A step by step guide to the process can be found here.
