As reported earlier, SQL Server 2012 has officially ended as of 12th July 2022.

If you are still using this version of SQL Server, you could be in the danger zone and, unfortunately, ready to crash and burn!  

End-of-life means that Microsoft will no longer release hotfixes, cumulative updates or service packs and will not support any security vulnerabilities or bugs.

If you are still using this version of SQL Server, you can see that this potentially represents enormous problems for your organisation’s data and security.
