Currently we are using ArcDesktop 10, ArcGIS server 10 and ArcSDE 10 along MS SQL 2008 64 bit sp2 now we are going to upgrade Arcgis desktop, server  to latest version and we are also planning to Migrate fro MS SQL 2008 to MS SQL 2014 or any latest stable version.

1. Please someone can give me lead and hints about steps

2. Is it recommended to use sql geometry rather than sde geometry

2. Do we need to do some extra steps to use this data in Arcmap and publish services from Arcgis server.

Yes we want to choose between SDE Binary and Geometry. It will be appreciated if you can which one is preferred and some advantages and disadvantages like

1. Will Arcobjects will work on SDE Binary, Geometry.
