With the release of SQL Server 2017, you now have the option to deploy the database engine and just about all of the related services on either Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.3+, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) v12 SP2, Ubuntu 16.04, or the latest Docker image that uses Docker Engine 1.8+ on Ubuntu 16.04 as of April 10, 2018.

 

In this webinar, Bill will cover the top reasons for moving or upgrading your existing SQL Server database instances from Windows Server to Linux. With organizations still running SQL Server 2005 and 2008, you need to be thinking about upgrading to the latest version of SQL Server.

 

By the end of the webinar, we hope that you’ll see that running on Linux is a no-brainer.  In addition, you’ll have the resources you need to leverage your Windows experience as a foundation to skill-up to Linux so that you can be a hero and save your company serious money.

 

What You’ll Learn:

 

  • Our top 3 reasons why we at DB Best think you should move to SQL Server  2017 on Linux sooner rather than later.
  • Manageability and application compatibility considerations for existing Windows shops to support SQL Server 2017 on Linux
  • Resources that you can start using today to skill-up on Linux so that you can take what you know on Windows and be a Linux expert in your shop in no time.
