Mitigate End of Support Risk

With End of Support for Windows 2008 now past its deadline, there are no more security updates available from Microsoft. This puts your business, data, applications and infrastructure at risk. Transition from Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 to Windows 2012, 2016 or 2019 as part of your cloud migration journey, from within your current cloud environment or from within your current data center.


Whether you are remaining on-premises, moving to the cloud or you are already there this is a definitive way to avoid End of Support issues and mitigate cybersecurity threats from patched OS's. For more information read our Blog on how you can Lift & Optimize your workloads to any cloud here.
