Start your migrations from Windows Server 2008 before the new year, you'll be thankful you did!

As the weather turns colder and the leaves start to fly, our minds turn to Thanksgiving in the US and how some things just go better together, like friends and family, turkey and stuffing, whipped cream and pumpkin pie—and HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers and Windows Server®.

And by the time the new year rolls around, you'll be thankful if you’ve upgraded to Windows Server 2019 on HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers before the end of support (EoS) deadline for Windows Server 2008 (January 14, 2020).

First, you’ll be thankful you don’t have to scramble to upgrade in two weeks—actually, just nine business days if you’re taking off New Year’s Day. Second, you’ll be thankful to start the new year with a modern, efficient, and secure server and operating system.

HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers with Windows Server 2019 help you do more with less, by giving you the power and flexibility to meet current IT needs—and expand in the future. They give you the ability to connect on-premises environments built on HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers with cloud computing through Microsoft® Azure® services, giving you the flexibility to enhance your on-premises server deployment with value-added cloud services when it fits your needs. Plus, they offer multiple security features to combat modern cyberthreats.

So, before the last of the leftovers are eaten and the apple pie is a pleasant memory, be sure to start your upgrade planning right away. You’ll be thankful you did.
