“Although the End-of-Support does not mean that the software will stop working but it does mean that it will not be supportable. This presents a perfect time for companies to consider migrating to the cloud or a hybrid solution,” said Clare Computer Solutions CEO, Brad Mendonsa.

Clare Computer Solutions (CCS), a professional services firm providing IT solutions for companies in the San Francisco Bay area since 1990, recommends that companies with Microsoft Server 2003 take note that on July 14, 2015 there will be no further Microsoft support for Windows Server 2003/R2.

What can the end of support for Microsoft Server 2003 mean to companies?  According to Clare Computer Solutions CEO, Brad Mendonsa, “Although the End-of-Support does not mean that the software will stop working but it does mean that it will not be supportable. This presents a perfect time for companies to consider migrating to the cloud or a hybrid solution.”

Microsoft Server 2003 Ends Support Which Will Present These Issues and Opportunities:

  • No updates or patches will be released for this product after the End-of-Life deadline. This means no bug fixes, and no security updates. Server software is too important to be left vulnerable to the constantly evolving cyber-threat landscape.
  • No compliance with standards and regulations. Whether or not you are comfortable taking on the risk of using unsupported software, your industry may have standards and regulations that will expose your business to dire consequences for being out of compliance.
  • Your business is missing out on all the improvements that have been made in subsequent Microsoft Server versions.  This is not insignificant. How can you expect your business to thrive and grow if your IT Infrastructure is dependent upon an operating system that is over a decade old?

The end of Microsoft Server 2003 provides a perfect transition point to review new tools and trends in the technology landscape: This may just be the perfect time to review costs associated with moving your technology to the cloud, servers, a hybrid approach along with Microsoft Office 365, virtualization and other new options for your business.

Clare Computer Solutions consults with companies by assessing the applications and workloads that are running on your current servers to help determine the right approach, depending upon specific needs.
