Windows Server 2003 End Of Service (EOS)

Maximize Performance and Minimize Risk

On July 14, 2015, Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2, as a part of its normal support lifecycle policies. If your organization doesn’t have a migration plan in place, you’re now at risk from compromised applications, data theft, or failure to meet regulatory requirements. By migrating to Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure, or Office 365, you can achieve concrete benefits, including improved performance, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased agility and speed of response to the business.

Older technology does more than just run slowly. Today, 32% of servers worldwide contribute only 4% of the total performance, but they use 65% of the total power.* As organizations move toward virtualization, cloud, and a more secure compliance environment, aging IT infrastructures are adding complexity and preventing the delivery of new and innovative services.

By upgrading to Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 family-based servers running the Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system, you can gain the breakthrough performance, flexibility, and speed you need to stay ahead.
