Windows Server 2003/R2 – End of Microsoft Support

July 14, 2015 marks another transition, this time the end of Microsoft support for Windows Server 2003/R2.

While this date may seem distant, now is the time to understand that the end of Microsoft support and the end of life of Windows Server 2003 means that your business needs to ensure that it has a plan to migrate the applications and workloads currently relying on Windows Server 2003.

Windows Server 2003

Just to be clear, Microsoft ending support for Windows Server 2003 means:

No updates
Will be developed or released after the end of support

No compliance
And lack of compliance with standards and regulations can be devastating.

No safe haven
Because virtualized and physical instances of Windows Server 2003 will be vulnerable.

We urge you to start planning to migrate off of Windows Server 2003 and onto a platform that will provide you the security and reliability that millions of businesses have  experienced over the last decade with Windows Server 2003.

Delaying will only create additional expense and problems that could incur downtime or loss of business. Not to mention replacing aging server hardware that parts are no longer available for.

It should be remembered that when Microsoft ceased support for Windows XP, the availability of replacement Windows 7 Desktops became an issue and were in short supply. Don’t leave it until the last minute, start the planning now!
