Windows Server 2003 Isn't Broke

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.

by Kurt Hildebrand | 01.26.15

The amount of data being generated by digital technology has increased exponentially in recent years. With the Internet of Things in its early ramp-up phase and mobile device ownership growing, the data explosion should only accelerate through the rest of the decade.

Microsoft Windows Server 2003

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.

Enabling Your Virtual Environment

Cisco UCS Leverages VDI Methodology for Huge Differentiation

by Joshua Feinberg | 01.07.15

Chances are that if your data center looks anything like the typical infrastructure we see on a day to day basis, you may be wasting money. I’d like to apologize if that seems rather straightforward, but it’s the truth. The deployment of virtualized environments facilitated by traditional blade server architectures is a movement that continues to be adopted by more and more companies. Like anything else, the devil is in the details—and the details aren’t being weighed appropriately.

When It Comes to Data, Planning Is Everything

Can You Survive Downtime?

by Kurt Hildebrand | 12.26.14

A recent article in PC Magazine reported that according to the National Archives & Records Administration, 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 or more days due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. And 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within six months of the disaster.

So how can your storage strategy play a key role in keeping you safe? Developing and maintaining a relevant and manageable contingency plan for recovering enterprise information is not a nice-to-have aspect of a storage strategy—it’s a must-have requirement for ensuring the ongoing continuity of your business.
