Microsoft Windows 7

Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 on January 13, 2015, but extended support won't end until January 14, 2020.

So, support for Windows 7 ends on 14th January 2020. After this date, technical assistance and security updates will no longer be available. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended you will be vulnerable to malware and security threats.

If you’re still running Windows 7, then it’s likely your PC is old and outdated, meaning upgrading to a new computer would be the most sensible solution. A new PC with Windows 10 will be faster, more powerful and more secure.

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 / R2

Support for MS Windows Server 2008 / R2 ends on 14th January 2020. After this date, Microsoft will no longer accept warranty claims, provide bug fixes and security patches, or offer any type of technical assistance. If you’re running a business, this leaves your data vulnerable to hackers and cyber-criminals.

Your available options are to either pay for Microsoft premium support, which is not the most cost-efficient solution in the long run, or upgrade to a new operating system. You might also consider updating your infrastructure to benefit from the powerful new virtualization features available in the latest Windows Server 2016 operating system.

Start Planning

It seems like 2020 is a way’s off but updating an IT infrastructure can be a large task. If you are still running Windows Server 2008 / R2 or Windows 7 the time to start planning is now.
