On July 14, 2015, Microsoft will end extended support for all varieties of Windows Server 2003

July 14th, 2014 · No Comments

Here are the beginning of “the end” warnings for all of you using Windows Server 2003. This will occur 1 year from today.

You need to start budgeting for replacing these servers in the next 12 months! Don’t forget since they are servers all the programs and sharing you do on them will have to be updated. Contact your Local Trusted Technology Advisor now, meet and create a plan.

If you are in the Ozark’s and don’t have a Trusted Technology Advisor please consider Ward Conciliation / Ward Computers. LinkedIn or FaceBook or Web Site 

On July 14, 2015, Microsoft will end extended support for Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2003.
Relying on these solutions for day-to-day operation of you business networks, this rapidly approaching deadline poses several risks:
• Exchange 2003 reached end of extended support on April 8, 2014, meaning your customers business-class email could be at risk. Especially with HIPPA, Sarbaine Oxley and other e-mail compliance issues
• Windows SBS 2003 and the workloads running on it will become more expensive to operate.
• Computers and networks could become vulnerable to malicious software and other security issues that get in through the server.
• Outdated software will create compliance issues.
