Unfortunately we’re losing another great business operating system. Similar to the way Microsoft phased out Windows XP they’ll be soon doing the same to Windows Server 2003. As of July 14th, 2015 the popular business server operating system will be no longer supported.
What does windows server 2003 end of life mean for your business?
When Windows Server 2003 end of support is activated on July 14th, 2015 Microsoft will no longer provide security patches & system updates. This will leave many systems vulnerable to attacks if they’re not phased out by the Microsoft imposed deadline. Without proper security patches and updates a system can become an immediate threat to the entire business network and important data.
