If you’re running Microsoft SQL Server on CentOS Linux® 7 today, migrating to SQL Server 2022 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the logical choice. Support for CentOS Linux ends June 2024, and mainstream support for Microsoft SQL Server 2017 has already ended. If you are among the many software consumers who use CentOS Linux to host SQL Server 2017, you need to make a plan. 

Join us to learn about how you can migrate your SQL Server on CentOS Linux deployments to SQL Server 2022 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux-for a security-focused environment that offers improved performance and increased supportability at an affordable price.

In this webinar we’ll discuss how Microsoft SQL Server and Red Hat Enterprise Linux will help you:

  • Manage a successful migration from CentOS Linux workloads to a security-capable and cost-effective Linux
  • Gain the greatest strategic advantage from an enterprise-ready database and operating system (OS) for running Microsoft SQL Server
  • Learn how to better manage both technologies for increased capabilities and operational efficiencies-to give you a better Microsoft SQL Server experience
  • Increase Microsoft SQL Server performance while lowering total cost of ownership 
  • Use the insight that Microsoft SQL Server on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux provides to users for detecting compliance, security, and performance issues with 1-click remediation
