It is important that you are running a supported version of Microsoft Windows on your server. If the license you are using is out of support entirely, this can have a dramatic effect on security of your systems. Below are the dates for current Windows Server Standard Editions:
|Mainstream Support End Date
|Extended Support End Date
|Windows Server Standard 2019
|Windows Server Standard 2016
|Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard
|Windows Server 2012 Standard
All previous versions of Windows Server and Windows Small Business Server have no support or security updates.
If you have hardware cover with EBS, we will advise you when your server version is outdated or when your hardware should be updated or replaced. If you would like to discuss this, please contact your Account Manager.
