Server 2003 is officially end of life.
End of support will have a dramatic impact on your business. This means no more updates from Microsoft which can result in a less stable and less secure infrastructure for your organization. Maintaining your legacy servers will add up quickly and maintenance costs for outdated/aging hardware will likely increase as well. Without continued support from Microsoft your business may also fail to meet most industry wide compliance regulations.
Let's give some perspective on this before we move on to a solution to the inevitable fate of Server 2003!
- In 2013, 37 critical updates were released under extended support for Server 2003. Your infrastructure will have to live with ZERO after July 14, 2015! Can you imagine what kind of impact that will have on your organization?
- Costs for aging hardware will increase as life moving forward aims to isolate 2003 servers. Not migrating will likely cost more with the purchase of intrusion detection systems, more advanced firewalls and network segmentation.
- Compliance? Your organization will likely fail to meet regulations. No compliance could equal lost business (no one wants that!)
