Windows Server 2003 support is ending on July 14, 2015

Posted by admin on February 3, 2015

Reduce costs and get the most out of your IT investment when you upgrade to Windows Server 2012 R2.

After more than a decade of support, Microsoft will say goodbye to the Windows Server 2003 server this year. After July 14, 2015, there will no longer be security updates, fixes or online support available. 

As a result, if you are running Windows Server 2003 after that date, you may be exposing your business to risks such as:

  • Lack of compliance with standards and regulations - No future updates available
  • Many other applications will also cease to be supported once the operating system they're running on is unsupported. Running the latest SQL? It won't be supported on a Windows 2003 Server after July 14. 
  • Microsoft support will no longer be available which means higher costs to attain a custom support agreement from a third-party and extra costs to setup more advanced firewalls and other security features to protect Windows Server 2003 servers.

Upgrading to Windows 2012 R2 saves costs and keeps you protected with the following features:

  • Run more applications on a single server by taking advantage of Hyper-V built-in virtualization 
  • Keep your network safe and protected with ongoing support and updates for Windows 2012 R2 
  • Save costs by virtualizing your storage and deliver reliable and scalable SAN-like storage solutions
