Compliance and Risk: The Time for Migration Is Upon Us

Upgrade Your Server Strategically to Avoid Penalties

by Camden Haley | 06.26.15

Of the nearly 9 million Windows Server 2003 systems still running as of last month, it is estimated by security firm Bit9 that about 2.7 million will still be chugging away after July 14, 2015—the official and final end of support (EOS) date for Windows Server 2003. For some organizations there has been little incentive to upgrade. Others have been struggling with shrinking IT budgets. And many smaller organizations don’t have in-house IT or are completely unaware of the looming EOS date. What does this mean for your organization? In a word, risk.

by Stacy Cote | 02.03.15

With Windows Server 2003 going end of support, it’s important for you to know where to go from a licensing and product stand point. Windows Server 2012 was designed with the advent of cloud strategy in mind. Servers need to run multiple applications at once, which is why some of the editions that were available have been eliminated from the line in favor of smarter solutions that cover more ground especially for heavily virtualized environments. Below are some basic things to note, that are essential to answer some questions you may have through your migration.

Time to Move On: Windows 2003 EOS

Why Not Make it an Educated Move?

by Lane Shelton | 01.23.15

By now everyone should know that Windows Server 2003 is reaching the end of support later this year. Just like the end of Windows XP, the 2003 end of support is a seismic event for Microsoft and their customers. But just how big of an event, well, that remains to be seen. In fact, when we first began talking to our customers about it, we took a very traditional approach: Identify 2003 servers, measure them and figure out how to migrate them to a new OS—whether it was 2008 R2, 2012, or even 2012 R2. Next…find them, remediate them, and replace them, done.
