End of Life for Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2
January 14, 2020
On January 14, 2020, it’s the End of Life (EOL) for Microsoft’s support for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 which means the end of regular security updates. Don’t let your infrastructure and applications go unprotected. We’re here to help you migrate to current versions for greater security, performance, and innovation.
What does this mean if you are currently using any of these products?
It means the end of sales, end of support and end of monitoring and updates. As a result, security would be an issue leaving users vulnerable to attack and exploitation. Bottom line, any business or individual that is operating any of these systems come January 14, 2020, will be in jeopardy.
