On January 14, 2020, Extended Support for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will end.
End of support means all regular security updates, automatic fixes and online support provided by Microsoft will be suspended leaving your server at risk for more sophisticated and frequent cyber-attacks. This also means you cannot actively engage Microsoft should security or compliance issues arise.
Planning an effective server migration plan requires time. Dynamic Quest can assist with identifying the proper solution for you and will help ensure the migration goes seamless.
Microsoft has recently announced Extended Security Updates will be available for FREE in Microsoft’s Azure for 2008 and 2008 R2 versions of Windows Server and SQL Server for THREE more years after the end of support deadline on July 9th, 2019.
Organizations that have resisted to upgrade or have been unable to upgrade due to software compatibility, will find it difficult to meet the impending deadline. While this can be a challenge, this is a prime time to modernize your IT solutions and consider migrating to the cloud with Dynamic Quest partnered with Microsoft Azure.
Dynamic Quest has an operational strategy set in place for this transition to ensure all data is secure and the process painless.
If you are not ready for a Cloud move, then the alternative is important to take seriously. We need to upgrade your environment to a newer version of the Window Server or SQL versions. Just contact us and we will work with you to set up a plan to upgrade your systems.
