Microsoft is advising all Server 2008 customers of their options after standard support ends on January 14, 2020. The two-page flyer linked below explains what it means and offers two options:
- Migrate to the cloud with Azure VM
- Upgrade on premises to Windows Server 2016
Scantron supports Windows customers in either of these scenarios. Microsoft is positioning Azure as the most attractive platform, but it is not a requirement that you move to the cloud. Each architecture has its pros and cons, and your Customer Relationship Manager can walk you through both alternatives. The PDF has a comparative table on page 2 as well as links to additional resources to help you better evaluate them.
