Windows Server 20H2 Support Ending
August 9, 2022, marks the end of support of the last of the modern lifecycle policy Windows Server version. These versions offer a much shorter supported period since they are more closely aligned with the Windows 10 versioning.
Microsoft is ending support for the last Semi-annual release of Windows Server. These server versions were an attempt to mirror the Windows 10 versioning, with a new release twice per year. These versions received support for 18 months following their release.

The main Windows server releases get support for 10 years, with most of them having options to extend it another 4 years after that if you purchase the extended security update option.
