Windows Server 2003 reaches end of life in less than six months. Are you ready to migrate?

BANGALORE, INDIA: As Windows Server 2003 reaches end of life in less than six months, Takeshi NumotoCorporate Vice President, Cloud and Enterprise Marketing, Microsoft in his official blog post has outlined the perils of operating in an unsupported environment. 

The dependence and comfort level on an old infrastructure makes migration of long-running applications a complex affair, but it can cost you a lot, if you continue using old infrastructure in today’s environment, reminds he.

“Running unsupported software carries significant security risks and may result in costly compliance violations. As you evaluate security risks, keep in mind that even a single unpatched server can be a point of vulnerability for your entire infrastructure,” said Numoto.

“Upgrading servers is not just a maintenance task. It provides an opportunity to deliver significant business value.” said he. “Business users expect mobile connected applications that were barely on the horizon with Windows Server 2003. Additionally, technology capabilities have also evolved dramatically in the last decade, with the emergence of cloud and new standards for manageability and security.”
