Windows Server 2003 will reach End of Support on 14th July 2015. Now is the time to plan your migration to Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Office 365 
 
Today’s business environments are very different to those of 10 years ago. Windows Server 2003 has been a trusted friend for over a decade, but now there are better ways to deliver against today’s business expectations. It’s time to upgrade to a modern platform, taking advantage of virtualisation and access to the cloud for scale, agility and performance.


What End of Support means 
 
From 14th July 2015, Microsoft will no longer offer security updates, support or technical content updates for Windows Server 2003. The result? 

• Security patches and hotfixes will no longer be available, leaving servers and applications vulnerable to security threats and downtime – 37 critical updates were released for Windows Server 20013 in 2013 alone
• Windows Server 2003 and the workloads and applications running on it will become more expensive to operate 
• Outdated software will create compliance risks 

Benefits of a modern datacentre Upgrading from Windows Server 2003 is an ideal opportunity to transform your datacentre and leverage the power, experience and cloud innovation built into the modern Windows Server 2012 R2 platform. Together with System Center 2012 R2 and Microsoft Azure, Windows Server 2012 R2 provides the building blocks for your business to benefit from the power of the private, public and hybrid cloud on your terms. By upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2, you won’t just avoid the cost and risk of running unsupported server software. You’ll gain access to powerful new capabilities that will help your business be more agile – like virtualisation and access to the cloud.
