Windows 7 End Of Service Life & Cloud Subscription Services.

Microsoft has recently made an announcement that they will be ceasing support of the Windows 7 operating system from 31st December 2019. Here’s what you need to know and how it may affect you.

If you are currently using Windows 7, any bugs or flaws within the system will no longer be getting patches or updates, meaning you might need to upgrade to Windows 10 -- or another operating system if you choose.

WebTRIM has primarily been sold or migrated the majority of its customer’s systems on to cloud-based systems as it is more secure, and is upgraded periodically as part of the service.

There are, however, customers that have preferred and chosen to remain hosting WebTRIM and other software programs on their local servers for a variety of reasons.

With an event like Microsoft switching off support for Windows 7, WebTRIM is here to help, whether you decide to keep using the old operating system or decide it’s time for an upgrade. If you’ve read along this far and you fall into the category of those affected by the ceasing of support by Microsoft, you have a couple of options for your WebTRIM system.

Option one: Server migration. If you prefer to host WebTRIM locally post-OS upgrade, we can migrate your system which will incur a one-off fee of $450 AUD.

Option two: Cloud hosting. WebTRIM has been offering cloud hosting of WebTRIM for many years successfully and has accumulated many testimonials of speed, seamless and timeless upgrades, and simplicity. This option requires no major server hardware, just your existing computer and your secure login. WebTRIM Cloud services are billed monthly and start from $250 AUD with no upfront fee.
