End of Support for Exchange 2010: Should you upgrade to Office 365 or Exchange 2016?
Oxford Computer Grouphas migratedmore than 5 million seats of Exchange from on-premises to the cloud. Yet many of our clients still keep an Exchange server on-premises.If you still have an Exchange 2010 server,keep reading – you need to know what to do next!
“Exchange Server, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide new features, bug fixes, security fixes, and so on. This lifecycle typically lasts 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this lifecycle is known as the product’s end of support. When Exchange 2010 reaches its end of support on January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide:
Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server
Technical support for problems that may occur
Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches
Time zone updates
Installations of Exchange 2010 will continue to run after this date. However, because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2010 as soon as possible.”
It’s time to migrate! But which path do you take?
You need the facts
There are plenty of migration paths to move off Exchange 2010. Options include migrating to Office 365/Exchange Online or upgrading to Exchange 2013, 2016, or 2019 on-premises. Whatever path you take, your decision will have long term impacts on your organization’s identity strategy and security posture that affect much more than just Exchange. You need to be fully informed before deciding on your upgrade path.
At our webinar on April 11, OCG Architect Nathan Mertz will discuss the technical impact for IT, user impact, and license impact to help you choose the right path for your organization.
