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 Continuing to run on out-of-date servers leaves organisations exposed to new vulnerabilities, malware threats and data breaches.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.

It might seem complicated or confusing, but don’t worry, Reformed IT can help.

    Reformed IT are beyond brilliant, anytime I have called in need of help since working for Walton & Allen, nothing is too much trouble, they have resolved any issue with ease.
    … More staff are always happy to help, friendly service every time. It can be stressful when your job is based mostly on a computer, and there is some kind of problem you are unsure how to resolve, but with Reformed IT just a phone call away, it is so re-assuring to know that anytime I hit a roadblock, you guys are there to save the day!
    Big thanks to you all, be lost without you guys!
