[BLOG] Still running Windows Server 2008? The time to upgrade is now.

Microsoft will no longer offer extended support for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 from 14th January 2020.

If you are still using these versions, you should plan your next upgrade now. After this date you will no longer receive security patches, updates or bug fixes from Microsoft which can have a knock-on effect for your applications.

As this date approaches, it’s time to ask yourself: what’s the best way to upgrade away from a Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 deployment?

Workloads will need to be migrated to modern environments by either keeping them on-premise by upgrading to Windows Server 2016 or re-hosting them in cloud.

Upgrade on-premises and stay protected. Upgrade to Windows Server 2016 for greater innovation, built-in security, and container support.

Migrate to Azure with free security updates. Rehost workloads to Azure and get three years of extended security updates at no additional charge.
