Windows Server 2008 R2 Migration Support
Simplify your migration to a newer Windows Server with help from Astria IT Solutions.
Improve your security and efficiency with a move to a new Windows Server.
As of January 15th, 2020, Microsoft no longer supports older servers like Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, and SBS 2011. So organizations still using these will experience increased threats of breaches and even ransomware.
But your business doesn’t have to be left outdated and insecure. Astria Business Solutions can help you migrate to a newer Windows Server so that you can take advantage of the enhanced security and productivity it offers.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
In a word, it is extremely critical. As of January 15th, 2020, Microsoft no longer provides support for Server 2008, Server 2008 R2, SBS 2011, and Windows 7. So any new bugs found after this date will go unresolved, and users will have to fend for themselves.
Additionally, these operating systems will be ripe for attack by hackers. Most users won’t receive security updates from Microsoft, so vulnerabilities will go without patches. And when critical issues like these are not fixed, criminals find their way in to cause serious damages.
In most cases the answer is yes. Older servers running versions of Windows Server 2008 may also be past their manufacturer’s support, which means the hardware can’t be patched further. This often leads to bigger vulnerabilities down the road, even when running a newer Windows Server version. So in most cases, we recommend upgrading the server hardware at the same time.
While there are a few exceptions with some older software and systems, in most cases your data can migrate to the newer Windows Servers. Our experts have trained in server migrations and are ready to assist you in moving your systems to the next generation.
Every business is different, and has different needs and day to day processes. So our professionals will work with you to determine the solutions to best fit your business needs. Just another benefit of working with Astria IT Solutions!
If you need to maintain HIPAA/HITECH or other regulatory compliance, failing to upgrade your servers from Server 2008, 2008 R2, and SBS 2011 is a violation. And fines for HIPAA compliance have rapidly increased in recent years. So failing to comply could result in much higher costs than the damages from a breach alone.
