Windows Server 2012 will reach end of support in October 2023
As with all good things, they will end at some point as do all good things. The same is true for different variations of software designed by Microsoft even if we’ve used for a long time and aren’t tempted to give them up.
But, the software giant needs to get rid of some old versions of software so that they can create fresh, improved versions.
The same is true of Windows Server 2012, which appears to be next in line for retirement by Redmond’s technology firm.
Don’t fret, you are still able to finish your work by the closing of the year which is why you must finish all of your work and then upgrade to a better version that is still supported.
Get ready for Windows Server 2012 end of support
Following Windows 10 version 22H2 and the excellent older Windows 8.1 ending the support, Microsoft turned its focus to Windows Server 2012.
Indeed, Microsoft has informed customers that extended service for all versions of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 will expire on October 10.
Keep in mind this: Windows Server 2012 reached its mainstream support date more than 4 years ago back in October of this year.
In the end, Microsoft pushed back the deadline for prolonged support for five years in order to allow users to switch to more recent, low-support Windows Server versions.
Naturally, when the end of extended support has passed, Microsoft will stop providing technical support and bug fix to newly-discovered problems that could impact the reliability or stability of servers running both OS versions.
It is important to note that this reminder follows two warnings that were issued in July 2021, indicating that this Windows version would reach its retirement date in the coming year.
