Customers still using Windows Server 2008 have a quickly approaching deadline… On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will end support of Windows Server 2008, so customers need to act quickly to migrate to a supported version of Windows Server, such as Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019, on new HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers.
