Support for Windows Server 2008 ends in January 2020. Continuing to operate in an unsupported environment exposes your business to greater risks of security breaches and regulatory compliance violations. This can lead not only to potential loss of earnings through disruption and fines but also from damage to reputation. In addition, these legacy systems are not Cloud-ready. Lastly, many application vendors will drop support for Windows Server 2008 once Microsoft ends support in January 2020. Unsupported applications on an unsupported operating system is a dangerous combination.
