End of support for Windows Server and SQL Server is fast approaching
Without security updates and bulletins released by Microsoft, businesses may be exposed to security attacks or compliance risks with industry regulations such as GDPR.
Support from Microsoft for SQL Server 2008 R2 ends July 9th 2019, while Windows Server 2008 R2 ends January 14th 2020.
End of support means the end of security updates, which can cause security and compliance issues along with the potential for business interruptions. Worse still, you may find it impossible to guarantee protection against hackers and malware. Without these updates you face the threat of losing precious data because of potential weaknesses in your environment - putting both your reputation and your business at risk.
