OS server support

Can anyone inform me if the following OS's are still supported by Microsoft?

server 2003 R2 SP2
server 2003 SP2
server 2008 R2 SP1

I find the MS support lifecycle a bit difficult to follow.

Support ends 24 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product's support lifecycle, whichever comes first. For more information, please see the service pack policy here .

Hope this helps

FYI the difference between mainstream support and extended support is that with no mainstream support, you will no longer receive any new products or features for the OS. You will still continue to receive security-related hotfixes, however for non-security hotfixes you will have to sign up with Microsoft for an extended support plan (this is what the Extended Support date refers to).

Nope, Microsoft never released a Service Pack 3 for Server 2003. Extended support for Server 2003 ends on the 14th of July, 2015
