SQL Server Versions Currently Supported and their End Dates

When working with SQL Server, not only as Database Administrator but also as Developer, you need to know the SQL Server versions currently supported by Microsoft, as well as their extended support end dates, in order to plan ahead.

And planning ahead does not only mean planning possible SQL Server instance migrations, but also, plan accordingly new development work and other related tasks.

 

Extended Support End Dates for the SQL Server Versions Currently Supported by Microsoft

In general, along with the extended support, each SQL Server version’s lifetime, is around 10 years, with SQL Server 2019, being the only exception to the rule, where its extended support ends on October 2030.

But let’s take a closer look at the extended support end dates, for all SQL Server versions currently supported by Microsoft:
