Helping Hand IT has the Solutions You Need to Stay Up and Running BEFORE Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 Server Support Ends

Are you running your business on servers that are soon to be obsolete?  When Windows 2008 server support ends on January 14th of 2020, your company’s data will become vulnerable and your infrastructure and applications will be unprotected.

No matter what type of business you are running, the potential for lost data and downtime are real threats when your servers are not fully supported.

What does this mean for your company’s servers?

When Windows support for 2008 servers and 2008 R2 ends on January 14, 2020, Windows will no longer provide free security updates, non-security updates, support options or online technical content updates for the servers running your business operations.

If you haven’t tackled this issue yet, now is the time to back-up your data, install the necessary upgrades or migrate your system to a virtual format and modernize your servers.

Why is server support so important?

An unsupported server is vulnerable to virus infections. These computer viruses can lead to data loss, data corruption, or ransomware that locks your system down and prevents you from accessing your client data.

Don’t wait until your data becomes vulnerable.  Contact the professionals at Helping Hand IT to learn more about how to protect your business and your client data by calling 630.940.1718.

There are myriad informational how-to’s on the web detailing the steps necessary to change over your servers that have been written by tech experts from Microsoft and others. It is not something to try on your own without having the technical knowledge and the experience to properly back-up data, upgrade servers or migrate your information to new servers when needed.

Converting your server can be a smooth process…until it’s not.
