Windows Server 2012 End of life in 2023
Microsoft announces the end of life for Windows server 2012/2012R2
Windows Server 2012 End of Life
In October 2023, Windows server 2012 will reach it’s end of life, meaning it will no longer receive critical security updates, bug fixes or technical support.
For those still running on this server, you must start thinking of switching soon. Running on a server that’s reached it’s end of life can be risky because:
– There will be no more security updates. Continuing to run on out-of-date servers leaves organisations exposed to new vulnerabilities, malware threats and data breaches.
– No more technical support. If any new bugs or technical issues appear, they will not to be fixed.
What Should You Do Next?
For those now looking to upgrade from their Windows 2012 Server, Microsoft advises that you upgrade to Windows server 2019 or newer. With this you’ll have the latest features and security as well as more time before thinking about upgrading again.
