[](http://www.wasatchit.com/sql2005/index.html) Microsoft has ended official support for MS SQL 2005 as of April 12, 2016. Database software has improved over the last 10 years, and new organizational tools and faster speeds are prominent improvements. Since 2011, support has been limited, but now as it is cut off, those still running [MS SQL 2005](http://www.wasatchit.com/sql2005/index.html) will need to upgrade.

Without upgrading, users can expect that their databases will become non-functional in time. Upgrading to SQL 2014 may require hardware upgrades and data cleanup, among other things. Microsoft has an upgrade advisor tool that comes with the SQL 2014 Feature Pack, but database managers and businesses may need a human guide to help them make the upgrade a smooth process.

Justin Fleming, VP of Operations at Wasatch IT said, œAs with all Microsoft products there is a shelf life and SQL is no different, we have all been expecting the end of life for SQL 2005 for a few years now. It is surprising to me to see and hear how many companies are still using SQL 2005. Without additional patches or support from Microsoft the vulnerabilities in SQL 2005 will continue to grow and grow. It is certainly concerning that so much of a companys critical data is stored in SQL databases and could be vulnerable to corruption because of unsupported software. Our recommendation at Wasatch IT is to make sure our customers and vendors have updated their software to supported versions of SQL, and with the 2016 general release coming on June 1st, we strongly recommend that if you havent started a migration plan to get off SQL2005, now is the time! We are happy to help with any questions on licensing or how to upgrade your current systems.”

Advantages to MS SQL Server 2014 over MS SQL 2005

SQL Server 2014 isnt Microsofts first upgrade to SQL. Microsoft had an upgrade in 2008 and again in 2012 but 2014 offers some significant upgrades, especially from the 2005 version. Enhanced security, programmability, reporting, data analysis, more integrations, and a simplified avenue to the cloud are just a few upgrades amongst many included with SQL 2014. One of notable improved organizational tools in 2014 is Delayed Durability” a feature that reduces latency and delays.
