Windows 2003 end of life

With the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 July 2015 end of life date fast approaching now is the time to show some love to your existing server infrastructure!

Microsoft has announced that the ‘End of Life’ for Windows Server-2003 will be 14th July 2015. This means that;

  • Security patches and updates will no longer be available for Windows 2003 and older servers will be more vulnerable to malicious attack
  • Once potential vulnerabilities are found, it will be easier to perform a malicious attack on multiple systems just by finding out they are running Windows 2003
  • If you have custom applications running on 2003, these will need careful consideration before migrating to a new platform

Do you have a Windows Server 2003 migration strategy?
With the average Windows Server taking over 200 days to migrate, now is the time to act and start planning for your migration.

Cloud Computing
From streaming videos and sharing photos with people, to backup and online data storage, cloud computing is an inherent part of our daily lives.
With the roll out of superfast broadband connections, this has made remote data transfer far easier and cheaper than ever before. Often it is more effective to store data remotely, increasing the number of e-services and bringing a more collaborative process to the internet.
Through the cloud and the increasing mobility of computing technology people now expect to access data from anywhere at any time. For businesses the cloud has the potential to dramatically increase efficiencies and productivity while reducing costs. Simply put, it is a model for utilizing computing resources to do more with less, and it will be a fundamental tool in achieving future sustainability and growth.
