The Upsides to Upgrading Windows Server

What 2012 Has Over 2003

by Jonathan Clark | 07.14.15

Windows Server 2003 was a breakthrough platform. With its reliable and stable environment it’s no wonder why it’s still popular today. Unfortunately, with end of service imminent, it will no longer be viable for enterprise computing. Security, compliance, and maintenance costs will expand rapidly while new security risks pop up all over the horizon.

Here’s a rundown of some of the incredible differences in performance and capabilities you’ll see when you step into the present with Windows Server 2012.

by Tammy Dozois | 06.23.15

It’s clear that continuing to operate an unsupported server is a great security risk that could have a significant impact on your budget and productivity. But migrating to a new server is also a significant cost—and can be a risky prospect, especially when you’re already behind the ball. Windows Server migrations are inherently risky, requiring a unique set of skills, experience, and technologies to execute successfully.

Remember when Windows Server 2003 debuted? A highlight that had us all excited were the advances in IT security built in by design. We’re talking about a re-engineered Internet Information Services with strong administrator control both over how Web applications run and user authentication to websites, folders and documents; a standards-based TCP/IP infrastructure, including support for IPv6; and software restriction policies to thwart inadvertently introduced gotcha code and unauthorized program installs.

Server 2003 EOS: A Migration Path for SMBs

Stay Agile, Competitive with Windows Server 2012

by Sarah Senftle | 02.20.15

For large enterprises, migrating to Windows Server 2012 before Microsoft officially ends support for Server 2003 on July 14, 2015 is a massive project.   Hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of servers might have to be replaced as part of the move to a modern, cloud-enabling server OS—all while keeping both migrated and unmigrated employees connected to the network and the business running without any downtime.

For small- and medium-sized businesses, a Server 2003 migration may be less complex, but it is no less critical. Once Microsoft pulls the plug, Server 2003 will be on borrowed time.
