How to run unsupported OS

There is no other way to operate the unsupported OS by virtual machines, however Microsoft announced that the OS whose Microsoft support has ended does not guarantee operation even if hyper-v virtualization for that reason.
so let's take a strategy to implement as a virtual machine on a board such as

  • VMware
  • Public cloud IaaS (AWS, azure, and so on)
  • OracleVM

HW manufacturers and vendors emphasize only the disadvantages of using the old OS, but I personally think using the legacy system unavoidable.
I want to update the OS, but even the vendor that developed the application has ended support, so it is difficult to upgrade the OS version only by the intention of the user company.
It you want to use old OSs, it is necessary to use private IaaS and public IaaS clouds will continue to be the norm.
