Microsoft Announces End of Support Date for Windows Server 2008

Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are approaching the end of their support lifecycle. This means that as of January 14th, 2020 there will be:

  • No free security updates for on-premise installations
  • No non-security updates
  • No free support options
  • No online technical content update

What does Windows Server 2008 End of Support mean for you?

  • Increased exposure to major vulnerabilities and cybersecurity attacks on systems, databases and applications
  • Discontinued support for many commercial applications and tools
  • Mounting operational expenses
  • Increased risk for your organization

All customers will need to upgrade and migrate: either to new hardware with currently supported Windows operating systems, or move to a cloud service.  In many cases there may be applications that will need attention during the migration to make sure they operate correctly in the newer OS.  ALI can provide assistance at all points along this process.

Reduce Hardware Capital Expense with FlxCloud

If you are currently running these products, not only will you need to upgrade your server operating system, but likely the hardware it sits on as well. If that’s the case, then it’s a perfect opportunity to move to our FlxCloud service, where you can get the compute and storage you need without the worry of ever upgrading again.

FlxCloud is not a “one size fits all” cloud service. Instead, it encompasses both the ability to both rent cloud-based IT resources on demand and leverage ALI’s IT support services as needed. Even better, it gives you the ability to dynamically allocate and control your computing resources. These are benefits you aren’t going to find from big cloud providers.
