The end of life for Windows Server 2003 is happening on the 14th July 2015 – 8 days away. For the small businesses that still operate and use Microsoft Windows Server 2003; support regarding bug/patch fixes will no longer happen and will not be supported, meaning your business will start to become more and more vulnerable to outside attacks or software bug problems.
Now – moving away from Windows Server 2003 or Windows SBS server 2003 isn’t an overwhelming task to do with the right knowledge and IT implementation plan. Here at Central IT Systems we’ve done countless different business migrations to newer technologies, and can help with moving your business forward to take advantage of newer, faster, and more secure business technologies.
A part of us is going to miss Windows Server 2003 as so many of our clients used it as a standard platform to host/share files, Exchange 2003, or SQL server, and overall it was a good solid server OS. But sadly over time Windows Server 2008 and 2012 have come out, and with further advances in faster broadband; moving to a hosted Cloud solution has become the best option for some customers.
Now Windows Server 2003 is coming to an end and will be missed, but those customers who haven’t implemented a change and move away from it need to start moving fast and act quick before it comes to its end of life support.
