The deadline is approaching for the end of support for Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2, and the specific date is October 10, 2023. Many companies have come to rely on these servers for their important applications and data. Therefore, it's crucial to understand the significance of this "end-of-life" situation and to be aware of the necessary steps to take.
Without consistent updates and patches, companies utilising Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 might find themselves facing security risks like ransomware attacks and data breaches.
Alternatively, if you're handling the upgrade in-house, make sure you've got a solid migration strategy in place. This should cover everything from backing up your data and testing application compatibility to providing training for your staff. The plan needs to be specific to your company's requirements, budget, and timeline.
