With this End of Life (Eol) date creeping up on us, we thought we’d discuss the importance of maintaining an up to date, and supported, IT infrastructure.
Microsoft will no longer provide support for Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 as of 10th October 2023.
This means that any organisation, currently using these products, won’t receive technical assistance, bug fixes, or security updates, from Microsoft, from this date onwards.
Continuing to use unsupported software exposes your business to a variety of security vulnerabilities, including malware, phishing attacks, ransomware, and data breaches.
To safeguard your business, it’s highly recommended to replace your ‘End of Support’ (EOS) server with an upgraded, supported, replacement or migrate to a cloud hosted alternative where possible.
Upgrading an End of Life (EoL) server is a crucial task to ensure the security, performance, and stability of an organisation’s IT infrastructure.
Here are three essential aspects an organisation should address when contemplating an upgrade for their EoL server:
Selection and Implementation
Testing and Deployment
Advice from us
Bear in mind that upgrading an EoL server is not just about hardware replacement, but also involves software updates, security enhancements, and performance optimisations.
It’s important to involve relevant stakeholders, communicate the upgrade plan to the entire organisation, and have contingency plans in place in case of unforeseen challenges.
