All good things must come to an end, and that is especially true in the world of computers and technology. Like most Microsoft products, Exchange Server has a 10-year support lifecycle, during which customers can gain access to new features and get help repairing bugs and resolving security concerns.
But on Jan. 14, 2020, the lifecycle for Exchange Server 2010 will officially come to an end.
When this shift occurs, Exchange Server 2010 users will no longer be able to receive support for technical problems, bugs, security concerns, and time zone updates, along with other problems, stability issues, and breaches that may occur.
Exchange 2010 will continue to run after next year, but the changes in the system can lead to unnecessary risks. That’s why we suggest migrating from Exchange 2010 before the lifecycle ends. This process may include shifting all mailboxes to Office 365, which can ensure you’ll never have to worry about upgrades or migrations again.
If you’d prefer to keep your server on premises, removing all Exchange 2010 servers and upgrading to a newer version, such as Exchange Server 2019, is essential. It is important to choose a version with the longest support lifecycle possible to ensure you’ll get the most out of your migration.
The tech experts at C2 are here to help make your migration to Office 365 or a new Exchange Server as seamless as possible. However you choose to proceed, the time to act is now – we’ll be ringing in 2020 before you know it.
