Windows Server 2008 R2 End-of-Life Support is near.

Windows Server 2008 R2 End-of-Life Support is near.

Windows Server 2008 R2 end-of-life mainstream support ended on January 13, 2015. However, there is a more important date looming.
On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will end all support for Windows Server 2008 R2.  2020 seems like it is a far way’s off but updating an IT infrastructure can be a large task.  If you are still running Windows Server 2008 R2 the time to start planning is now.

No Patches Leaves Your Operating System Vulnerable to Security Issues

End of support refers to the date when Microsoft no longer provides automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance. Vulnerabilities in the operating system that are discovered beyond this date will not be fixed by Microsoft. Furthermore, after that date Microsoft will no longer offer any support for the operating system. It won’t be long before those systems are specifically targeted and exploited. Don’t leave your infrastructure vulnerable!

What can I do?

It is time to begin planning now. An operating system upgrade likely requires a new server and possibly new software. Please speak to First Direct Corp. about upgrading your infrastructure and how it relates to your GoldMine CRM.
