As I posted a few days ago, Windows 7/Server 2008 End of Support happens one year from today on January 14, 2020.
Don’t sit back and relax, thinking you’ve got a year. You don’t. If you are like many companies, you may still have a substantial number of computers running Windows 7 and some servers running Server 2008 and 2008R2. It takes time to plan for widescale replacements like this and if you don’t start planning now, you will be in a pinch come this time next year, scrambling to get your replacements done. Don’t be that company.
Start planning now and make a plan to methodically replace the necessary systems throughout 2019 so come this time next year, your users will be well settled in with the new operating systems. Most importantly, you will be safe from the hackers who will be waiting at the gates to exploit any organization who has not completed these necessary upgrades.
