138 Weeks Until SharePoint 2010 End of Standard Support

Tuesday, 13 October 2015 is the last day of standard support for SharePoint 2010 (another 5 years of self-help with no MS bug fixes and only security updates ant their discretion)

Don't panic, it is not as bad as it sounds

From and including: Friday, 15 February 2013
To and including: Tuesday, 13 October 2015

It is 971 days from the start date to the end date, end date included

Or 2 years, 7 months, 29 days including the end date

Alternative time units

971 days can be converted to one of these units:

  • 83,894,400 seconds
  • 1,398,240 minutes
  • 23,304 hours
  • 138 weeks (rounded down)


The good news is that SharePoint 2013 actually extends the life of your SharePoint 2010 investment through to 2018 via the deferred upgrade option. This lets you upgrade your server infrastructure without having to change the UI or 2010 based solutions (for the most part). It is not really an upgrade, more like install new servers and the attach the content databases from 2010. More on this later, but for now, rest easy and enjoy 2013 (the year) even if you are sticking with SharePoint 201 for the foreseeable future.


SharePoint 201? If it dates...

SharePoint 201? If it dates back to Roman times that's a very impressive support period. :-)
