From July 2015, there will be no support for the old operating system, Windows Server 2003. It is a matter of deep concern for organizations that are still using it as it may have multifold repercussions. The impact will be for both physical and virtualized Windows Server 2003 instances and it will only mean that you will have to spend more money to keep the OS running. There will not be any Windows Server 2003 updates and such old servers will not be able to clear a compliance audit. It may also mean that a number of application providers will not be able to provide you with ongoing support as Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 support is also being discontinued.

But it won’t be a matter of concern anymore, if you take action right away. Plan a server migration with an experienced service provider.


Quite a few migration service providers will guarantee you a seamless migration but take a lot of time to plan and make that plan work. Some of the key consideration while shortlisting a service provider is to evaluate if they have the right experience to accelerate the process while lowering your costs and disruption to users. It is important to have a service provider with a comprehensive understanding of the migration process so that you can streamline your IT environment to your business needs. The provider should have relevant experience to migrate Microsoft Workloads, Applications (including custom, Microsoft and third-party).


Microsoft recommends that the migration process be (1) Discover, which means discovery of the existing environment (2) Assess, which means to evaluate the workloads (3) Target, which means identifying where the workloads can be moved to and (4) Migrate, which includes the actual migration. So select a provider with an in-depth understanding of the migration process.


So what are you waiting for? Time is running out. Get in touch with migration experts today.
