Upgrading SQL Server from 2016 to 2022

Dustin Crowell 0 Reputation points


We are looking to upgrade our virtual instance of SQL Server 2016 to SQL Server 2022. The issue is we don't necessarily have the resources or full knowledge on our team available to perform this duty. Does anyone have a recommendation of a Microsoft Partner that might be able to assist/consult. Also, what would be an acceptable price range for an upgrade service like this (I realize this is hard to determine not know the details/infrastructure), but a general range.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Hi @Dustin Crowell

    Does anyone have a recommendation of a Microsoft Partner that might be able to assist/consult.

    I would suggest you may open a ticket to Microsoft support and the engineers will help to resolve the issue.

    @Dustin Crowell

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.

    According to the Microsoft Learn website, SQL Server 2022 is generally available in Partner Center beginning November 16, 2022.
    You can find SQL Server 2022 Partner Resources here: https://partner.microsoft.com/en-US/asset/collection/sql-server-2022-partner-resources#/

    As for the price range, it’s difficult to provide an estimate without knowing the details of your infrastructure and requirements. However, this page on the Microsoft website provides information on SQL Server 2022 pricing and licensing. This page includes details on the different editions of SQL Server 2022 and their respective pricing.

    Hope this helps.
