Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ended on 12th April 2016. This means that Microsoft are no longer producing security updates for this product. We have worked with Customers recently that still have some SQL Server 2005 instances.

SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 still have some life left in them with the extended support running until 2019, although mainstream support for them did stop in 2014. However, some software vendors have dropped support for 2008 and 2008 R2 for their latest software releases.
