Windows Server 2003 End of Life is Coming Are You Ready?server

In case you haven’t heard, Microsoft has announced that the end of life for Windows Server 2003 is July 14, 2015.  Let me repeat that: as of July 14, 2015 you can no longer get Extended Support for Windows Server 2003.

If you’re wondering what this means for you, it comes down to this – there will be no patches or security updates, putting your applications and business at risk. New threats won’t be addressed and your WS2003 systems will become a security risk and compliance nightmare.  In a recent blog post, Microsoft warns us to “watch out for performance bottlenecks”.  Industry experts estimate that there are more than 10 million machines still running WS2003 that are soon-to-be stranded.
