Server 2003 End of Life

Microsoft has announced that the end of life date (EOL) for Windows Server 2003 is 14th July 2015. From this date there will be no patches or security updates, putting your applications and business at risk. New threats won’t be addressed and your Windows 2003 systems will become a security risk and compliance nightmare, the Microsoft Product Lifecycle page provides information on End of Support dates for Server 2003 products.

There are still many customers, who run Windows Server 2003 in production today and many will continue to do so until end-of life of Windows Server 2003 or close to that date for various reasons.   While this date is over a year away, current systems should at least be checked to insure things are running properly.

So what does this mean for your business?

If your reading this then it is likely your business currently runs Server 2003,  it is imperative that you begin planning your migration as soon as possible as many manufacturing, production or third party programs may also need updating to run on the latest server operating systems.
