It is one minute to midnight for companies that are still working with Windows Server 2008. As from 14 January 2020, this operating system will no longer be supported by Microsoft. In other words: no more security updates, which means you face a high risk of malware and other problems.
It was announced a long time in advance and now it’s almost time: there will be no more support for Windows Server 2008 from Microsoft as from the beginning of next year. The technology will continue working but your company will no longer be protected against viruses and hackers. There will be no more updates and patches that protect your data against new malware and vulnerabilities.
On-premises or in the cloud
Do nothing and hope that things won't be so bad? That’s not an option. Cheops can help you maintain your IT security in three ways. You can opt for an upgrade to Windows Server 2019 on-premises or in the Cheops Cloud. In addition, you can migrate to Azure, where Microsoft guarantees security updates for another three years.
Are you unsure about these different scenarios? Then ask for help from an IT specialist who can guide you with your migration and IT management. At Cheops you can quickly find support tailored to your business needs. We look at the options together based on your current situation. We can then design, implement and manage the most suitable set-up for you.
Focus on innovation and growth
It is important for you to realise that we don't necessarily handle all your apps and workloads in the same way. We always analyse the best option for each workload. This means we can help you with the upgrade or migration to the new version on-premises, in the Cheops Cloud as well as in Azure. If you also decide to outsource the management of this entire hybrid cloud, this will give your company complete peace of mind. Moreover, you will have more breathing space and flexibility for focusing on innovation and the growth of your business.
