Windows Server 2008 R2 host with Parallels Virtuozzo Containers installed does not receive any new Windows updates.

The latest installed MS updates were released in 2013.

Additional information

Currently, installation of SP1 is not supported.

Thus only manual migration of data is possible - it means you have to create new container on destination node and migrate data by means of the installed software (e.g. Export\Import) or, if possible, by simply copying data.
