Microsoft Server 2003/R2 End of Support

Friday, January 16, 2015

The Microsoft Windows Server 2003/R2 Extended Support end date is quickly approaching on July 14, 2015. If your organization is still running applications and workloads on Windows Server 2003 and you’ve been putting your migration project on the back burner, now is the time to start planning your server upgrade. Don’t wait until the last minute as vulnerabilities discovered after July 14 will not be addressed or fixed and your organization will soon fail to meet industry standards and a compliance audit.

What does this mean for you?
Windows Server 2003 Support end date means no more updates or patches leaving your infrastructure volatile. To put the importance of these support updates into perspective, according to Microsoft, there were 37 critical updates released in 2013 for Windows Server 2003 under extended support. Imagine the repercussions of not receiving any of those critical updates. Even if you think you're saving money by not upgrading your systems, it will soon become more costly to maintain aging hardware and performance will steadily decline.

If you’re using Windows Server 2003 – Datacenter, Enterprise or Standard editions -- we encourage you to get in touch with us to discuss and plan a server upgrade and migration. We can discuss your options including Windows Server 2012, Azure, Cloud OS Network and Office 365, all of which will protect your business, enhance performance and remote access, and reduce storage and upkeep costs. Give us a call today and we can determine which option is right for your environment. This is no longer a choice but a necessity as July will be here sooner than you think!
