Windows Server 2012 - End of Life

Windows Server 2012 Logo

Microsoft support for Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 ended on the 10th October 2023. 

These products no longer receive security updates, non-security updates, bug fixes, technical support, or online technical content updates.

If you cannot upgrade, you will need to use Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for up to three years. ESUs are available for free in Azure or need to be purchased for on-premises deployments.‚ÄĮ

As Microsoft Gold Partners, D2NA can help advise you on your options. Our experts can explain the benefits of each option and ensure your infrastructure remains protected.

What are your options?

Migrate to Azure

Microsoft are offering a 3-year extended support period for Windows Server 2012 if you migrate to Microsoft Azure. This could be the right option if you have business critical apps which are preventing you from upgrading. We can help you with this migration.


Future versions of Windows Server remain under support from Microsoft. We can assist you in getting your servers upgraded to a more modern Operating System such as Windows Server 2019 or 2022 which will safeguard them for the immediate future.

Do Nothing

If you choose to do nothing, your server(s) will become vulnerable and open to attack. There is intelligence to suggest there are vulnerabilities ready to be exploited from Day 1. You will be putting your organisation at massive risk and the impacts could be severe.
