Exchange Server Supportability Matrix

Some time we are getting confused during customer requirement, mainly when customer dont want to move newer version or want to stick on same old flavor. But As we know Microsoft moving very fast and releasing newer version and not supporting the legacy technology.

For Exchange implementation/transformation we have to know which version supporting which technology, such as Exchange 2016 will not support Windows 2008 R2, here is the chart.
