Are You Prepared to Migrate Off Windows Server 2003?

by Government Technology

Microsoft will discontinue support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. Any bugs, security vulnerabilities or other problems users have with the software will force them either to live with a flawed product, purchase an extended support contract or migrate to a newer, supported operating system. Microsoft reports there are about 24 million active and virtual instances of Server 2003 today. Consensus among industry analysts is that many organizations won’t complete their migrations in time, but everyone should consider the move mandatory.

Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003 next year

by Softpedia

Windows Server 2003 support will come to an end on April 14, 2015, and security experts warn that the world could get through another “Windows XP moment” unless organizations running it prepare for the transition to another platform. Microsoft ended Windows XP support on April 8, and although the company warned that sticking to an unsupported operating system was a very risky decision, approximately 25 percent of the desktop computers worldwide were still running it.That’s very likely to happen with Windows Server 2003 as well, as only a few companies have until now expressed their intention to upgrade.

Windows Server 2003 end of life guide

by Computerworld

Following on from end of support for Windows XP in April 2014, we are now rapidly approaching Windows Server 2003 end of life. Despite Microsoft warning about end of life for Windows Server 2003 as early as April 2013, many organisations are yet to begin their migration away from the server platform. Worse still, many organisations and IT pros are unaware of the huge financial costs and security risks should they continue running Windows Server 2003 past the end of life date. Reports from HP claim that more than 11 million systems are still running Windows Server 2003. With fewer than 240 days left until end of life, this a huge problem as the estimated time required to migrate a datacentre of 100 or more servers can range from a minimum of three months and upwards of 18 months.

Report: Most Businesses Still Don't Trust Cloud Security

Study respondents, including IT leaders who represented businesses and organizations with a total of more than 2 million employees and $4 billion in annual revenue, said "the unknowns" of security were the most common concerns that stopped them from moving their operations to the cloud.

Homeland Security Sends Alert on Windows Server 2003 Risks

by The Wall Street Journal

The Department of Homeland Security this week issued an alert about the coming end-of-life for Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Server 2003, saying IT departments running unsupported software could open businesses up to elevated cybersecurity risks, hardware compatibility issues and potential compliance conflicts. Yet for many companies, an upgrade in the near future may not make business sense, one analyst says. CIO Journal reported in September that businesses worldwide were running an estimated 23.8 million physical and virtual instances of Windows Server 2003. At the time, analysts said many firms had been slow to migrate, and that it was unlikely every business would do so before Microsoft ends support on July 14, 2015. The technology is more common in industries like health care, government and utilities, as well as some retail point-of-sale systems.

Solution providers prep customers for Windows Server 2003 end of life

by Tech Target

Compared with the Windows XP transition, the migration from Server 2003 may be more laborious and complicated for solution providers. Adding to the challenges, customers' attitudes remain mixed -- despite Microsoft's looming deadline.It's like déjà vu all over again: Just as companies grappled with the end of Windows XP, the July 14 end-of-life date for all versions of Windows Server 2003 is approaching. With an estimated 20 million Server 2003 machines still in use and no word from Microsoft on whether it will offer extended support, solution providers have no small task ahead of them as they prep customers for a transition.

Windows Server 2003 end of support looms

by Computer World

Despite years of lead-time, many businesses had to scramble this year when Microsoft ended support for its incredibly popular Windows XP desktop operating system.

Prepare for Windows Server 2003's End of Support

by Redmond Magazine

Microsoft officially ends support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. The deadline has some of the same ramifications that the Windows XP deadline had: Microsoft will no longer patch Windows Server 2003 for new security vulnerabilities. Presumably, Microsoft will offer expensive Custom Support Agreements for enterprises to continue getting patch support after that date, but there's been no official announcement yet. In the meantime, new security vulnerabilities keep cropping up for the aging OS. During the last full year, 2013, Microsoft released 37 critical updates for Windows Server 2003.
