BANGALORE, INDIA:Microsoft has announced that it will end support for Windows Server 2003 operating system on July 14, 2015.

CIOs have an opportunity to modernize their business with Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft Azure for improved productivity and operational efficiency.

Tyler Bryson, general manager – Marketing and Operations, Microsoft said, “With only 100 days remaining for the end of support for Windows Server 2003, it’s time for businesses to accelerate their migration plans. In the mobile-first, cloud-first world, running enterprises on unsupported platforms will not only have cost and security implications, but will also cause enterprises to fall behind on the innovation curve. We urge all businesses to transition to Windows Server 2012 R2 or Microsoft Azure to reduce risks, embrace the latest in platform technology and modernize their infrastructure. Along with our partners, we are committed to help customers to move to modern Microsoft platforms.”

In a study, commissioned by Microsoft, Ascentius found that while legacy systems present familiarity due to tenure of use, migrating to modern infrastructure will enable businesses to align themselves with the latest regulatory standards and also help them gain competitive advantage. Along with this, businesses will be able to curb the overhead expenditure of maintaining outdated infrastructure and reduce loss of revenue during downtime without compromising the security of the data and IP of the company.

A.S. Rajgopal, managing director & CEO of NxtGen Datacenter and Cloud Technologies said, “As a leading hosting and cloud services provider, we need to have a robust, scalable and reliable platform. Building on Windows Server 2012 R2 has enabled us to build a dynamic and modern cloud infrastructure and offer cost-effective cloud services, both public and private, for our customers”.

With Windows Server 2012 R2, customers benefit from a resilient, enterprise-grade virtualization platform.
