Windows Server 2012 Migration: What’s in It for Me?

What to Expect from a Move to Windows Server 2012

by Jack Dillman | 03.02.15

Migrating to Microsoft's Windows Server 2012 is focused on changing technology landscapes, work environments, and compatibility with the cloud. All of the new features and editions of the migration are very cloud ready. Although Microsoft has retired some products, it’s been in an effort to make the new Server more streamlined and efficient across the board. Read on for a list of the benefits you can expect from migrating to Windows Server 2012

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.

VDI: Past and Present

Get Your Virtualization Engines Running Using Cisco UCS

by Tony D'Ancona | 02.17.15

There have been a lot of changes in desktop virtualization in the past year or so. Where once we were pretty happy if we could deliver a virtual desktop directly to a client that had specific software for receiving a virtual desktop, today we have so many more options. In reality, the VDI story has changed to the EUC story. VDI is certainly one of the important use cases (for users that are well-connected to the network), but end-user computing now addresses the other aspects, from a disconnected user to a modern application delivery system that gives us SSO access to apps, SAAS, content and desktops, through devices with a HTML5 browsers—all managed with an Enterprise Mobility Manager.
