Microsoft Migration: Act Now

Microsoft Migration: Why Should You Act Now

Be Ready to Move Forward with These Helpful, Handy Reminders

by Melissa Rivas | 04.08.15

Have you made a plan for Microsoft Windows 2003 Server end of support? Sure, July sounds warm, distant, and far away at the moment; but if you don’t plan for the future, it will happen anyway—with or without your servers being up to date. Decide on the front end how you will approach the migration with poise and grace.

You have a lot to look forward to with the new Microsoft offerings of 2015. Small Business Server 2011 is going away, but that’s okay—Microsoft is offering Windows Essentials 2012 and Windows Server Foundation 2012 in its place. Luckily, these two do not require CALs, so cheers to that! One less wrinkle on your forehead, right?

Migration Plan

Don’t Have a Migration Plan from Windows Server 2003?

The Consequences Could Be Painful

by Dave Olivier | 04.03.15

Here’s a safe prediction for 2015: by the end of summer you will have finally said goodbye to that reliable workhorse of your IT infrastructure, Windows Server 2003. In July, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches and other support for this once-groundbreaking product. In fact, you’ve got much less time than that remaining. If you haven’t yet begun your migration to Windows Server 2012 R2, you need to start planning for it now.
