Server 2008 End of Life
Ten years ago, Microsoft first released Windows Server 2008. Now, the countdown to its official end-of-support (EOS) date has begun. If you haven’t already done so, it is time to start planning your migration so you are upgraded before January 14, 2020 - the sooner you start, the better.
Why? Simple - after that date, Microsoft will no longer offer security patches and other critical support for the Windows Server 2008 operating system. As a result, any servers still running Windows Server 2008 will be left vulnerable to any new issues that arise after that point - leaving your business’ other technology equally exposed to threats.
What end of support means:
- No Security
- No Updates
- No Compliance
