In six months, there will be two Windows End of Life events for major technology solutions: Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. If you are running either of these programs, upgrade now before it’s too late.
If your organization hasn’t already upgraded away from Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, do so soon. A full migration takes time, and vulnerabilities could appear during the upgrade. Don’t risk your security by waiting past the time when you can make a smooth transition.
Windows 7 has been such a popular platform that until this past December it still had more users than the current Windows 10. However, all good things must come to an end, and there’s a campaign to get Windows 7 users upgraded as soon as possible.
If you need to move several workstations over to Windows 10, it might take a while. Start setting up the necessary meetings to make this happen now. Consider working with consultants to make this process go as smoothly as possible.
Consider the Microsoft 365 option; a cloud-based service that is billed monthly. This can make upgrading to Windows 10 easier to budget for smaller companies. Quikteks can help you make that decision.
Microsoft is also ending support for Windows Server 2008 R2 in January of 2020. Note that any server infrastructure that utilizes Windows Server 2008 R2 will no longer be receiving critical security updates. This is not something any business owner wants to risk.
There are two new upgrade options of the Windows Server software, plus the cloud-based Azure platform. Talk to us. We have the tools and know-how to get you upgraded with minimal downtime and risk, and we might be able to save you some money.
