Windows Server 2008 End of Support (EoS)


Microsoft has announced that support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 ends January 14, 2020. After this date, Microsoft will no longer release security updates, which may expose businesses to security attacks or make them out of compliance with industry regulations. To avoid disruption to their business, customers should plan to migrate to Windows Server 2016 on HPE Gen10 Servers before the January deadline.
