Over the past months, Microsoft has a altered how it distributes updates to its Windows operating systems, calling it a “servicing model.”

But, one still supported OS was left out – until now.

On August 21, 2018, Windows Server 2008 SP2 will join the servicing model ranks, receiving its first preview of the monthly quality rollup and will then follow the same monthly regimen as the other versions of Windows:

A security only quality update: Starting September 2018, this security only update will be released on Update Tuesday, commonly referred to as “Patch Tuesday”, the second Tuesday of the month.

A security monthly quality rollup: Starting September 2018, this monthly rollup will be released on Update Tuesday, also known as “Patch Tuesday”, the second Tuesday of the month.

A preview of the monthly quality rollup: Starting August 2018, the preview rollup will be released on the third Tuesday of the month.
