That means the countdown is on with a little over one month left on the clock before regular security updates end and organizations running these workloads will be exposed to possible cyber-attacks. Unfortunately, it doesn’t end with SQL Server 2008.  In January, Windows Server 2008 will reach end of support (EOS). Like death and taxes, EOS is inevitable for almost all software products, which is why it’s smart to start assessing your ongoing risk from product retirement.

You take tagging for granted. “Wait!”, you say. “I don’t take it for granted!”, I promise that you do. Whether you are a novice cloud operator or a seasoned architect, you take tagging for granted and, you are doing it wrong. How do I know this? Experience. Specifically, your experience.

You tagged your environment based on how you logically built your stack to keep track of your resources. Then, you threw in a few other bonus items like an extra key:value pair for what Operating System the machine is running or if it's in your production or staging environment. But, that is just the beginning of the potential insights you can gain with an appropriately tagged environment.

Cloud is blowing up. Every organization, big and small, is looking at the cloud to increase agility, reduce IT spend and increase uptime. That’s all peachy, but why does adoption slow down after the first few months for many companies. Adoption typically follows an S-curve where initial adoption is quick and then it quickly falls off. The problem is:
