Preparing for Windows Server 2008 End of Support

Preparing for Windows Server 2008 End of Support

End of support for SQL Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 is quickly approaching on January 14, 2020. This means that Microsoft will no longer release security updates, exposing you to security attacks and putting you out of compliance with industry regulations like PCI, HIPAA, and SOX. 

Planning and executing an upgrade or migration is no small task, so we recommend getting this process started now. Don’t let your infrastructure and applications go unprotected. 

There are a few paths you can take based on your specific business requirements.

  • Upgrade On-Premise. Upgrade your on-premise environment to Windows Server 2019, 2016 or 2012.
  • Migrate to NearCloud. Take advantage of our always up-to-date and always secure private cloud solution
  • Select a Hybrid Cloud. Run workloads where they perform best. Combine dedicated servers, private clouds and public clouds to create your ideal environment.  

If you are an ITS client now is the time. You should already be working with your vCIO to schedule the upgrade / migration to ensure a smooth transition before the end of support deadline. Do not wait until it's too late!

End of support is a great opportunity to modernize your business technology for the future. If you've been considering the cloud but haven't made the move yet, let's talk. Whether you're an ITS client or considering becoming one, we're happy to come out to review your network and make recommendations based on your specific needs.  Fill out the form below to get the conversation started today.
