About HÜNGSBERG

Expiration of support for old Microsoft server generations as well as Hüngsberg DAXware EOL

Prepare yourself for the future today!

„Better change a running system“*, is Microsoft’s advice in an article about the end of the extended support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008/ 2008 R2. The idea behind that is, that an enterprise benefits more from investing its money in growth and productivity, than in frequent security updates, which are necessary to keep old systems running.

In that regard, we would like to draw your attention towards the cancellation of the extended support for the following server operating systems: 

Microsoft SQL Server 2008/2008 R2: July 9th 2019
Microsoft Windows Server 2008/2008 R2: January 14th 2020
Microsoft Windows 7: January 14th 2020

From the respective dates onward, those servers will not receive any further features or security updates.


We already reminded you last year, that by the end of 2015 and respectively 2017, we ceased our mainstream support of the engDAX versions 1.0 to 2.2 for our clients without a maintenance contract.

Additionally we drew your attention towards the upcoming cancellation of our support for the following versions: 


engDAX 2.3 – year of release 2013 – EOL: December 31st 2019
engDAX/ediDAX 2.4 – year of release 2014 – EOL: December 31st 2019


You will realize that right now is the best moment to concern yourself with a renewal of your server and software solutions. That way you can guard your company from inconvenient expenses for matters of security as well as compliance and get the optimal benefit from the advantages of innovative technologies. Microsoft cautions you that project cycles can take several months and because of that, customers should think about this issue early on. **

In relation to this, we would also like to inform you about our follow-up products, for instance our engDAX/ediDAX version 3.0.

You can choose between a corresponding update/upgrade and a web service (SaaS), depending on your demands and your data volume. We will gladly assist you in your search for the correct solution for your enterprise.
