Why you need to upgrade
Once security updates are no longer provided, security vulnerabilities are bound to be found. Even if the applications that run on your server are being updated, the server components are not. One type of exploit for older unsupported servers is a root escalation—if one of your applications is compromised, the entire server is at risk.
Since it may be 5 years since you have updated your system, many new benefits are available that are best implemented during a full operating system upgrade. Here is a list of ideas for you to consider when updating your server:
- Security hardening: It is always easiest to harden a system when it is new so that it can be fully tested
- Performance: New Linux releases provide better performance
- Redundancy: Implement high-availability services during the upgrade
- Capacity: Increase hardware or virtual machine resources
- Hosting Provider: Server upgrades provide a perfect opportunity for changing providers
