Prepare for the Windows Server 2008 end-of-support switch off
With support for Windows Server 2008 ending soon, now’s the time for your organisation to consider modernising its infrastructure
Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 support is ending on January 14 2020
After this date, Microsoft will no longer release security updates, which may expose you to security attacks or put you at risk of non-compliance with industry regulations (including GDPR). Avoid business disruptions and take the opportunity to modernize your IT infrastructure by moving it to the Microsoft cloud.

Benefits of migrating to the Microsoft cloud
Along with optimizing costs, reducing security threats, and increasing consistency across your infrastructure, migrating to the Microsoft cloud increases scalability and gives your business increased scalability and flexibility. This makes it especially useful if your business is growing or has fluctuating capacity needs. In addition, your security updates are extended during migration, meaning you get to protect your business data – and your brand reputation.
