In case you hit snooze one too many times on your upgrade plans, tomorrow is the day: SQL Server 2005 officially becomes unsupported, with Microsoft no longer delivering security and stability fixes. Even the classics must eventually be rolled out to pasture.
The change shouldn't come as a surprise: Microsoft has been marketing the date for 18 months, with a big push last year to get customers to upgrade, and it's collected a number of resources on how to successfully navigate the upgrade.
If you've recently made the jump — or are planning to keep SQL Server 2005 running despite the End of Life — I'd love to hear how it's going. Email me at [email protected], or as always find us on Twitter.
