Microsoft Windows Sever 2012 and End of Life Updates




Microsoft has announced it is ending support for Windows Server 2012 on October 10th, 2023. This includes editions: Datacenter, Essentials, External Connector, for Embedded Systems, Foundation, and Standard. While users will still be able to use their devices normally, Microsoft will not push security updates not any feature updates to the operating system. Without these updates, devices can become vulnerable to malware, viruses, trojans, and more.


What does this mean for users?

Devices can be updated to: Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, or Windows Server 2022. (Note: Windows Server 2016 will end service on Jan 12, 2027 and Windows Server 2019 on Jan 9, 2029.)
