Wouldn’t you do anything to protect it?

Microsoft has announced that on July 14, 2015 support is ending for Windows Server 2003. If your business is running on this legacy server after July 14, 2015, you could be at risk.

Your business and your employees could be affected. If your business-critical applications—such as payroll, accounting, HR, inventory, email and CRM—are running on Windows Server 2003, your business is at risk.

Your customers could be affected. Does your business accept credit cards? You’ll be out of PCI compliance if you are still using Windows Server 2003.

SpireTech can help. We’ll identify the applications and workloads that are effected, make recommendations for the target destination—which could be Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure, Cloud OS or Office 365—and then plan and manage your migration.

A quick assessment will help get us started. Email us at [email protected], call 503-222-3086, or visit our website to learn more. July 14, 2015 is just around the corner and waiting until after the deadline approaches could mean you’re spending the summer cleaning up. Migrate now and then plan your summer vacation!

I look forward to talking to you about migrating from Windows Server 2003 to a solution that’s suited specifically to your needs.
