Windows Server 2012/2012R2 end of support approaching

In just seven months, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 will reach end of support. On Oct. 10, the two products will no longer receive security updates, non-security updates, bug fixes, technical support, or online technical content updates.

Microsoft offers three options for users:

  • Migrate to Azure and receive three years of free Extended Security Updates (ESU)
  • Upgrade to Windows Server 2022 on premises
  • Purchase ESU for on premises deployments. These will continue for three years, renewable annually, for customers with Software Assurance or subscription licenses under an enterprise agreement.
