Prepare for Windows Server 2008’s End of Support

Extended support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 ends January 14, 2020. We urge you to start planning your migration strategy today so that your infrastructure and your applications do not go unprotected.

End of Life/Support Means:

  • No Updates will be developed or released after the end of support.
  • No compliance and lack of compliance with standards and regulations can be devastating. If your business accepts credit cards, you will be out of compliance. If you handle client heathcare data, HIPAA data policies may not be met.
  • No safe haven – virtual and physical instances of Windows Server 2008 will be vulnerable.
  • No support – should you have an issue with your 2008 server there will be no phone or onsite support options.
