Microsoft announces SQL Server 2012 End of Sales.

Xani

Microsoft has announced the end of sales for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 products on December 31, 2014. Do you know what exactly this means for you and your SMB customers?

 

To best understand what SQL Server 2012 end of sales means, let’s first take a look at the different Windows Server OEM product lifecycle phases:

 

  • HP Launch Date: the products are quotable, shippable, and visible on public HP web pages
  • HP EOL Date (End of Life): HP End of Life date refers to the period before
  • HP DISCO Date: No more orders are accepted
  • HP OBS Date: Product is no longer being manufactured
  • Microsoft EOL (End of License) Date: End of License/End of Distribution- OEMs may not distribute product after the product end of license date.
  • Microsoft EOS (End of Sales) Date: End of Sales is the same as the Microsoft End of License Please note: Microsoft End of Sales is different from Microsoft End of Support, for more information please visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle website.

 

As a result of the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 end of sales, there are several HP part numbers that will be discontinued on November 30, 2014.

SQL Server 2014 is a great option to take the place of SQL Server 2012. SQL Server 2014 enables customers to build mission-critical application and Big Data solutions using high-performance, in-memory technology across OLTP, data warehousing business intelligence, and analytics workloads without having to buy expensive add-ons or high-end appliances. Using a common set of tools to deploy and manage databases both on-premises and in the cloud, SQL Server makes it easier for customers to take advantage of the cloud with existing skills.

 

So, what replacement options are available from HP?

Do you have a reference/source link to the MS announcement for EOS?

 

I can only find life cycle pages relating to SQL 2012.

Hi Paul Czaplinski,
Unfortunately, at the moment we do not have an available source link to share with you. If you visit the SQL resources page,

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/sql-server/Resources.aspx, you can chat with a SQL expert to get any additional information you need.

 

Thank you for contacting the Coffee Coaching team!
