Microsoft Windows Embedded Solution Lifecycle and Support
Microsoft Windows Embedded Solution Lifecycle and Support
PRLog - Jun. 30, 2014 - SON, Netherlands -- Advantech, a global leader in the embedded systems market, is happy to introduce best practice solutions to ensure normal functioning of Microsoft® XP Pro systems even though product support from Microsoft has ended. With Microsoft's recent announcement, technical support for Windows XP Pro ended on April 8th, 2014. Even though Microsoft embedded channels are still able to provide XP Pro product availability (through December 31st, 2016), Microsoft will no longer be issuing any security updates for the operating system. However, Advantech is able to offer advice on how to keep XP-based systems secure to help you maintain embedded platform longevity and reliability.

Migrate WES 2009 without Changing Application

Windows Embedded Standard (WES 2009) is XP-based operating system, providing a modular version of Windows XP that can be fully customized to include only the software needed for a customer application, eliminating extraneous programs and limiting possible security vulnerabilities. Since WES 2009 is XP-based operating system, any customer applications which can be run on XP Pro can also be run on WES 2009.

WES 2009 Offers with Security Updates Until 2019

Windows Embedded Standard is committed to fifteen years of product availability with ten years of support, and no-cost security updates. For systems that currently run on XP, migration to WES 2009 with Microsoft security updates is available until 2019, and licenses are available until 2024. Migrating to WES 2009 is the best choice for customers who don’t want to change their applications but still want to be able to have long-term technical support.

Future-Proofing Windows Operating Systems

It’s time for everyone to start thinking about future plans for an operating system beyond Windows XP. To recap: for customers who prefer to continue using their current application setup, Advantech provides WES 2009 without the need to change their applications, with security updates until 2019, and licenses sales until 2024. And for customers who would like to adopt the latest Intel chipsets, Advantech can provide the latest operating systems and technologies.

As a Microsoft Embedded Gold Partner, Advantech provides Microsoft Windows OS Solutions that are complete and compatible with industrial platforms and systems. We fulfill the varied needs of customers, and are committed to support a smooth migration path during this critical transition period.
