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.

Windows Server 2003 Migration Reality Check

Some Questions to Ask as You Take Stock of Your Infrastructure

by Dave Olivier | 01.19.15

On July 14, 2015, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches for Windows Server 2003. Running unsupported software presents significant risks and complications for your business that will only increase in severity as time goes on.

End of support for Windows Server 2003 can have a major impact on your business, so it’s important to take a server migration reality check. End of support means that Microsoft will no longer develop or release any updates for Windows Server 2003, and after support ends applications running on Windows Server 2003 will likely fail to meet compliance standards and regulations.

by Dave Olivier | 01.12.15

Most IT professionals understand the importance of moving critical enterprise data and apps off Windows Server 2003 before support expires next July, but gaining support from budget-conscious business executives can be a challenge. The regulatory and compliance risks of managing servers that are no longer receiving updates or technical support are frightening, and the potential costs of maintaining these legacy servers and protecting them against cyber-attacks can have long-term impacts on IT budgets.
