Microsoft

The 14th July 2015 for Server 2003 End of Life Support is now only days away.

This means that Microsoft will not be issuing patches , updates or fixes of any kind. Even if your Windows 2003 server is stable at this time, do you want to risk running your applications on a server that will not ever again be supported starting July 15, 2015? Microsoft has estimated that it will take approximately 300 days to migrate across apps and workloads for an enterprise size organisation. So your organisation needs to ensure that it has a plan to migrate the apps and workload currently relying on Windows Server 2003 onto Windows 2012. We urge you to start your planning to migrate off of Windows Server 2003 and onto a platform that will provide you the security and reliability that you’ve experienced over the last decade with Windows Server 2003, with the added value of the features now included in Windows Server 2012 R2, as well as the hybrid opportunities available to you with Microsoft Azure. SCC has developed two complementary options: migrate or extend: Option 1: Migrate As one of Microsoft’s leading migration partners in the UK, SCC is experienced in in helping organisations define and deliver successful, business aligned migration strategies. We are able to recommend the most appropriate technology to replace Windows Server 2003 and, where appropriate, identify opportunities to upgrade, consolidate or decommission dependent services. Option 2: Extend While our recommended approach is the migration of dependent services away from Windows Server 2003, we understand that this may not be immediately possible. To assist with the challenges of in-house application dependencies, budget constraints and resource management, we can help you extend your installations of Windows Server 2003 beyond July 2015. To understand which option is best suited to your organisation contact your SCC Account Manager for further details or email moreinfo@scc.com
