Extended support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 is coming to an end 9th July 2019.
For Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2, end-of-life mainstream support ended 13th January 2015, and Microsoft ends Extended Support on 14th January 2020.
This means that if you are running any of these versions then you should consider what you need to do once they reach the end of the support lifecycle.
Bytes recommend upgrading to current versions for the most advanced security, performance, and innovation. To help our customers that can’t get it all upgraded by the deadline there are options to help you protect applications and data during the upgrade transition.
The end of extended support and security updates from Microsoft means that your systems will become vulnerable to outside threats and aren’t compliant with industry regulations such as GDPR and ISO 27001
With End of Support coming soon, there are a few options to consider and actions you should take to address this deadline.
