Microsoft has announced that Windows Server 2003 support is ending on July 14, 2015.
Now is the time to start your action plan if you are still running this version of Windows Server. More concerning is that many of these W2k3 servers are running applications originally developed for a 32-bit operating system. Even if your Windows 2003 server is stable at this time, do you want to risk running your applications on a server that will not ever again be supported starting July 15, 2015?
Replacing Your Server
Best practice planning for your Windows 2003 server migration should include phases for project scope (technical and project management), resource allocation, capability (i.e. programmers and testers) and budget. There are more granular components as well, but these are a good place to start.
In summary, the rule of thumb for successful migrations is to plan ahead, be thorough and don’t wait until the last minute if it can be avoided. If you need advice or assistance with planning or performing your migration, we can help and in some cases grants are available in certain areas to allow you to budget accordingly.
