Exchange 2007 End of Life Roadmap
On April 11, 2017, Exchange Server 2007 will reach end of life. If you haven't already begun your migration from Exchange 2007 to Office 365 or Exchange 2016, now's the time to start your planning.
What does end of life mean?
Microsoft will no longer provide:
- Technical support for problems that may occur
- Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server
- Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches
- Time zone updates
Your installation of Exchange 2007 will continue to run after the EOL date. However, because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2007 as soon as possible.
What are my options?
With Exchange 2007 reaching its end of life, this is a great time to prepare a migration plan.
Your options are:
- Migrate to Office 365 using cutover, staged, or hybrid migration
- Migrate your Exchange 2007 servers to a newer version of Exchange on your on-premises servers
Migration to Office 365 is your best and simplest option to retire your Exchange 2007 deployment.
With Zones Office 365 migration services, you'll have a real support engineer that will walk you through your migration, from planning and design all the way to the migration of your last mailbox.
