Windows 7, and it’s server counterpart Windows Server 2008 R2 have had a great run over the years. When these platforms were released in 2009, Microsoft committed to providing 10 years of product support for their shiny new Operating System and Server platforms. Once this 10-year period ends, Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 product support.
The exact date Microsoft has pegged for ending this support cycle is January 14th, 2020. After this time, Microsoft will no longer release technical and security patches for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. This means that if a security vulnerability is found that affects these systems, there will be no patch from Microsoft to mitigate these security concerns. Microsoft is strongly recommending that it’s users migrate to newer systems or upgrade existing systems to Windows 10 or Windows Server 2019 before this time period to avoid a situation where you are unable to receive necessary security patches for your outdated systems.
