So Why Fix It?

by Seth Mitchell | 01.29.15

Twelve million. That’s the number of physical servers around the world still running Windows Server 2003, according to Microsoft’s count. But July will see extended support for the beloved 11-year-old workhorse operating system come to an end.

Every day, another PC Connection customer comes to us and asks how to leverage the cloud for one of their workloads.

OMG 2003! So Much Noise

Let’s breathe and focus on what’s next

There’s a lot of Windows Server 2003 out there, we get it. We see it first-hand working with customers doing deep-core licensing analysis because we have to know where all the VMs, clusters, and servers are to determine the best ways to pay for it all. We’ve all read the statistics, and our work with customers confirms it – Windows Server 2003 is still a workhorse, even in today’s modern datacenters. The risks are obvious – just read any daily news digest to find another story about a major security breach. Breaches involve data and the data lives in datacenters. So when Microsoft pulls the plug on W2003 Server in July of 2015, some of that data is going to be connected to unsupported server infrastructure.

Specifically, the introduction of big data analytics and mobile applications are increasing the need for more, and more flexible, processing power and storage capacity.
