Today we are announcing the general availability of Windows Server Premium Assurance with which you can add the flexibility to keep systems running without disruption as you modernize. When you purchase Premium Assurance, you receive “critical” and “important” security updates and bulletins for six additional years after the end of Extended Support. This means you can get up to 16 years of total support beginning from Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 versions.
The best time to purchase is now. You can get the lowest price and lock in savings if you purchase Premium Assurance through June 2017. Prices will increase over time, so act now.
