SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 have the end of service on date July 9, 2019. Microsoft will officially end the service but many SQL Server Experts like me will continue to Support the SQL Server 2008 R2 and if you ever face any performance tuning issue, you can always hire for Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check. In this blog post, we will see the list of the final service pack of SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2.
However, if you ever engage me to help you with SQL Server Performance Tuning, I would request you to first install the latest service pack of SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2.
Here is the link to download the final service packs of SQL Server versions which are soon to be out of support.
Once you install the latest update you can send me an email to help you with the SQL Server Performance Tuning. Here are a few additional blog posts where I discuss how I try to help my customers with SQL Server Tuning.
Here are six-part blog post series I have written based on my last 10 years of experience helping with Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check. I strongly recommend you to read them as they walk you through my business model.
