Server 2008 – End of Extended Support

It's time to plan your upgrade

What is happening?

With the end of support date for Windows 2008 R2 just around the corner, you know you need to do something but what’s going to be the most painless way of getting where you need to be?

Once extended support ends, you will no longer receive security, reliability or feature updates leading to:


–  Unpatched vulnerabilities

–  Increase the risk of compromise

–  Risk of performance degradation and instability

–  Failure to comply with industry standard and regulations (PCI, PSN, HIPAA, etc)

The WannaCry attack led to disruption in at least 34% of NHS trusts due to NHS organisations running unpatched or unsupported Windows operating systems.
