Server 2008 R2 end of life is fast approaching. 

Not only is Windows 7 end of life on January 14th but Server 2008 R2 as well.   

What happens on these EOL dates? Microsoft stops releasing security updates. The products keep working, but you are now exposed to a whole world of soon-to-be-unleashed zero-day security vulnerabilities.

Windows Server 2008 R2, by the numbers

Server OS market share numbers are notoriously difficult to come by, but a January 2018 tweet from Ned Pyle, principal program manager in the Windows Server high availability and storage group, indicated Windows Server made up about 70% of server OS installations with approximately 40% of that number on Server 2008/2008 R2. A recent webinar from the Docker container platform company showed, out of 21 million enterprise applications, 80% of them run on Windows Server, with 70% of that number using Windows Server 2008 or an earlier version. 

It's not too late...
