Extended Support for Windows Server 2008 R2 Ends January 14, 2020
End of support (EOS) for Windows Server 2008 R2 is a critical event that, if left unrecognized puts an organization at much higher risks for security breaches. Unfortunately, most organizations don’t align their internal application lifecycle schedules to the EOS schedules presented by software vendors like Microsoft and therein lies the major problem. How do you migrate applications running on Windows Server 2008 R2 to a supported OS without disrupting current business or projects?
Extend Your Application’s Lifecycle without Refactoring or Rewriting
Chef offers the only automated application lifecycle management solution of its kind that abstracts the application from the underlying Operating System (OS) by capturing and bundling its needed dependencies, and creating a portable package that can be deployed and managed anywhere.
With Chef, IT teams can repackage an application and deploy on a supported system without having to do a rewrite or refactor. Chef’s approach goes beyond doing a basic “lift and shift” by modernizing the application and enabling it to be managed the same way cloud native applications are managed. In fact, a major manufacturer estimated a savings of at least $1.6M across a portfolio of two hundred legacy apps using Chef Habitat vs. their previous plan of doing a lift-and-shift.
