October 2023 Cloud Forecast

Avoid the storm coming from End of Support and boost your Cyber Resilience during the fall. 

Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 are less than a month away from reaching their End of Support (EOS) date. 

Consider this our URGENT PSA to all Windows Server users. Think of it as an amber alert for your tech.

Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 are less than a month away from reaching their End of Support (EOS) date. After this point, Microsoft will cease providing security updates, non-security updates, bug fixes, and technical support for these products. This poses a significant risk to your business, as your data, applications, and infrastructure will be exposed to security vulnerabilities and potential regulatory non-compliance.

For eligible Microsoft customers who have Software Assurance through an Enterprise Agreement, there is an option to acquire Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 and SQL Server 2012. However, it’s essential to note that this can translate into substantial costs, potentially amounting to millions of dollars over a three-year period.
