14th January 2020 | End of Support for Windows Server 2008 & Windows 7



Microsoft mainstream support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 operating systems ended in January 2015, with the extended support ending on 14th January 2020.


End of support means the end of regular security updates. With cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated and frequent, running apps and data on unsupported versions can create significant security and compliance risks. The 2008 family of products was great for its time, but we highly recommend upgrading to the most current versions for better performance, efficiency, and regular security updates.
