What Happens When Support Ends?
Cybersecurity Risks – Microsoft will no longer release security updates – any remaining servers will be susceptible to new cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
Non-Compliance – You may also risk non-compliance with cybersecurity insurance and certifications such as Cyber Essentials if you continue to run Windows Server 2012.
Limited Hardware & Software – As new hardware and software emerge, they may become incompatible with Windows Server 2012 limiting the options available to your business.
Declining Performance – Over time, an unsupported operating system is prone to performance issues, affecting business operations and productivity.
For organisations currently using Windows Server 2012, we recommend upgrading to a cloud-based solution:
- Migrate to Azure Virtual Machines – Transition workloads to virtual machines in Azure for scalability and simplified management.
- Adopt Office 365 services and SharePoint – Utilise Microsoft’s suite of cloud-based productivity and collaboration applications.
Our team at Carrera UK can assess your infrastructure and requirements to determine the optimal upgrade plan for your business. We can also provide ongoing support for your new system to ensure that your business can work most efficiently.
