Microsoft Terminates Support for Windows Server 2008 – Update Now!

Some Microsoft products will soon disappear from the scene because Microsoft will end the support for Windows Servers 2008 and 2008 R2 as of 14 January 2020. SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 as well as Windows 7 are also affected.

Below is an overview:

With the end of extended support, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates for the above-mentioned products. It is therefore advisable to update your own IT infrastructure in order to avoid taking unnecessary risks. The Microsoft Windows Server 2008 has already been followed by several new generations.

An update of the IT infrastructure is also an investment in competitiveness. Microsoft does not let its old products run out for nothing: they no longer meet the safety requirements and customer expectations of the new workplace. On the Microsoft website you can find a migration guide which is available free of charge.
