Support is ending for Microsoft Server 2008 and 2008 R2
by MACC’s Technical Support Team
As another year has passed we are now approaching the end-of-life date for Microsoft Server 2008 and 2008 R2. Microsoft has announced it will end support and updates on 1/14/2020. If you are running Server 2008 or 2008 R2 you may be wondering how this will affect your company.
When a product is no longer receiving support this means, there are no new features or fixes for the operating system and any help you will need from Microsoft regarding Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will no longer exist. The operating system can become more vulnerable to attacks and security breaches. All versions of Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will be affected (Datacenter, Enterprise, Standard, and Hyper-V). The server will continue to function as normal, but it will no longer be as safe and secure to operate once support has come to an end.
For those customers currently operating on Microsoft Server 2008 or 2008 R2, the task of upgrading to a new server running 2016 software or newer may seem complicated. Worry not, we have you covered! The MACC Tech Support Team can provide a quote for a new server and new licenses. We can also handle the migration from the old server to the new version. To request a quote, please contact us at 402-533-5300, or via email, at [email protected].
If you have any questions, or if there is anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact your MACC Tech Support Team and we will be happy to help!
