Microsoft Extends Windows Server 2008 Support to 2015
According to Fagerness, Windows Server 2008 will transition from Mainstream Support to Extended Support on January 15, 2015. The OS was originally scheduled to transition to Extended Support on July 9, 2013, but the modifications to the expiration dates are due to the launch of Windows Server 2012, granting customers an additional 2 years to plan their migration to the newer Server release.
"Organizations that are currently running ... Windows Server 2008 should note the new dates when Mainstream Support and Extended Support end. Customers who are interested in migrating to Windows Server 2012 can contact a Sales Account Manager or a Technical Account Manager," Fagerness said in the September issue of Microsoft's Support Lifestyle Quarterly Lifeline.
