Microsoft announce Server 2003 End Of Support

End of Support.

For more than a decade, customers have been leveraging Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003 technologies and getting a great return on their investment.

Microsoft support for Windows Server 2003 will end on 14th July 2015. This means Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, fixes or online support for Windows Server 2003 after this date.

Substantial improvements to server operating systems have been made since then that help businesses compete better in today’s marketplace. As such, Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003/R2 on 14th July 2015.

Now is the time to lay the IT foundation of your businesses for the next decade and beyond. Upgrading aging servers and operating systems now will not only reduce costs in the long run, but also provide significant benefits by leveraging on the latest IT technologies.

To prevent possible disruptions to your business, we recommend that those servers are migrated to a modern server operating system.
