Windows 7 and Server 2008 End of Life

Windows 7, Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 End of Life

Microsoft has publicly announced January 14, 2020, as the end date for extended support, also knownas End of Life (EOL), for the Windows 7 and Server 2008 operating system.

As of this date, Microsoft will no longer produce any patches or updates to address known or otherwise newly discovered issues for the Windows 7 platform. This potentially exposes users of devices with the Windows 7 and Server 2008 operating system to vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by threat actors—exploits, bugs, viruses, and ransomware.

So, if you’re one of the 40% of global organizations still using Windows 7 as your main operating system, HILTECH would like to help you successfully migrate off of Windows 7 and/or Server 2008. Contact HILTECH Data Solutions for a complete analysis and solution for migration.

Prepare and Plan

We will conduct an audit of your technology assets to determine if there are Windows 7 and Server 2008 devices and other soon-to-be-unsupported hardware or software components in use. To migrate successfully, devices need to have a minimum hardware specification to run Windows 10 at a productive level. We’ll provide a detailed report showing you which devices are running Windows 7, Office 2010, how old they are and if replacing or upgrading is the right strategy.
