Microsoft has announced the end of support date for Windows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 as 14 January 2020.
After 14 January 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates and support for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2. If you continue to use Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 after support has ended, your server will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks.
Every product has a lifecycle. It begins when the product is released and ends when the product is no longer supported. These products will continue to work but new security and feature updates will stop. Knowing end of support timelines will help keep your business and employees productive and secure.
Customers who use Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 products and services should migrate to Microsoft Azure to take advantage of 3 additional years or Critical and Important security updates at no additional charge.
Customers who wish to keep servers on-premise will need to upgrade to Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 and then to Windows Server 2016.
For customers who cannot migrate or upgrade before the end-of-support deadline, they may purchase Extended Security Updates to keep server workloads protected until they can upgrade (restrictions apply).
