Ten years ago, Microsoft first released Windows Server 2008. Now, the countdown to its official end-of-support (EOS) date has begun. If you haven’t already done so, it is time to start planning your migration so you are upgraded before January 14, 2020 - the sooner you start, the better.
Why? Simple - after that date, Microsoft will no longer offer security patches and other critical support for the Windows Server 2008 operating system. As a result, any servers still running Windows Server 2008 will be left vulnerable to any new issues that arise after that point - leaving your business’ other technology equally exposed to threats.
What end of support means:
- No Security
- No Updates
- No Compliance

Avoid Software Licensing Headaches
Variable payment options give you the freedom to pay only for the software you need.

Ferrum Technology Services is proud to offer the Microsoft Office 365 cloud-based productivity suite to small and midsized businesses in the Illinois area.
