Microsoft Server 12 End-of-Life

ATTENTION: I.T. Professionals and Server Administrators
Microsoft will stop providing all updates for Server 2012 Operating System on Tuesday, October 10th, 2023. After this date, these products will no longer receive security updates, non-security updates, bug fixes, technical support, or online technical content updates.


Server 2012 is 10 years old and several replacement Server Operating Systems (Server 2016, Server 2019, and Server 2022) have replaced Server 2012. They put all their effort into improving the newest Operating System and only work on fixes to former Operating Systems. It takes teams of engineers to maintain 4 different Server Operating Systems so supporting a product that was sold 10 years ago is their cutoff.

What Must I Do?

It’s time to update your server as soon as possible. If you don’t keep your system updated regularly, you allow the hackers more time to exploit the vulnerability on your computer. By partnering with Altek, we manage the update process on all your computers, guaranteeing up-to-date systems and significantly reducing the risk of intrusion. This can affect your entire computer network because your server is connected to every piece of equipment. If you still have a server running Server 2012 or older you should plan for an upgrade to a new server or cloud server.

Access to New Features and Functionality: Stay innovative and competitive in a fast-paced business landscape by leveraging the latest technologies. Newer versions of Windows Server introduce a plethora of exciting features. Enjoy enhanced storage options, advanced networking capabilities, seamless integration with cloud services, and more. But that’s not all! Upgrading also means ongoing support, better compatibility with third-party software and hardware, and a future-proof server infrastructure.
