server support for Windows 2003 ending
Windows 2003 Server support is ending
What does this mean?
Delaying may create additional expenses. You might need to include more advanced firewalls, network segmentation, and so on, to simply isolate Windows Server 2003 servers. This will only result in an environment that costs more, and is still out of compliance, and out of date. Not to mention the maintenance costs for aging hardware… you’re just delaying your opportunity to transform.
Will be developed or released after the end of server support.
Lack of compliance with standards and regulations can be devastating.
Both virtualised and physical versions of Windows 2003 will be vulnerable.
What should I do?
We recommend you to start planning to migrate off of Windows Server 2003 and onto a platform that will provide you the security and reliability that you’ve experienced over the last decade with Windows Server 2003. This can include the added value of new features included with Windows Server 2012, the hybrid opportunities available to you with Microsoft Azure, or Microsoft Office 365.
