Seems like yesterday we saw Microsoft bring an end to Windows XP (R.I.P., buddy!), leaving a bunch of people scrambling to get new systems in place. The dust has settled, and now Microsoft is again pulling the plug on their support to an older software. If you’re currently running Windows Server 2003, your days are numbered. On July 14, 2015, security updates and patching will stop, which can leave important and/or critical business applications at risk.
Migrating away from Server 2003 can be a lengthy, labor intensive process. Yes, it’s still a year away from end-of-life date. But in order to have a successful migration, you’ll need to plan ahead and not wait until the last minute. NOW is really the time to start making the move.
To give you an idea of what’s required to make a migration happen, take a look an article I found which breaks down the steps and helps you understand the costs and time necessary to complete it.
