The years are coming and going more quickly as I get older. There are some scientific theories for this phenomena. The IT world sometimes measures time by operating system version. If things aren’t broke, of course, we don’t want to invest the time and money to change them. Why upgrade server operating systems if we don’t have to? In my informal estimation, at the time of this writing, our customers are just about split between Windows Server 2008 and 2012 versions. This shows that the lag of adoption of new server operating systems is alive and well. This said, we’ve already received inquiries from our customers and prospects about Windows Server 2016.
Windows Server 2016 Support and our Platform
A few weeks ago, we certified all of our products on Windows Server 2016. This created the need for more infrastructure internally in our development and testing environments. The addition has been smooth, however, as we make it a point not to engineer operating system dependent solutions. We aren’t planning on removing support for Windows Server 2008 for quite a while. As long as people demand it, we’ll be there to support it. Even though sometimes I can barely seem to remember what year it is, I’m sure of this.
