Windows Server 2003 Migration

Windows Server 2003 is no longer supported. Have you upgraded?

Microsoft has ended support for Windows Server 2003, leaving businesses vulnerable to increased security risks, higher operating costs and non-compliance

Let's talk cloud

Upgrading needn't be a daunting prospect with Outsourcery

The end of support for Windows Server 2003 provides a timely opportunity to transition from legacy on-premises infrastructure, to up-to-date and flexible cloud services.


What does End of Support actually mean?

  • No updates – there were 37 critical updates in 2013 and 32 in 2014, leaving remaining organisations vulnerable
  • No compliance – Windows Server 2003 will no longer pass compliance audits, for example Payment Card Industry compliance which could mean Visa and MasterCard no longer doing business with you
  • No safe haven – end of support impacts both physical servers and virtualised servers, as well as Microsoft Small Business Server 2003. Continued reliance on these platforms will increase operational costs
  • No software support – software will be unsupported with no patches or security updates

What are the benefits of upgrading?

Microsoft has been busy since 2003, making improvements to its newer Operating Systems. Upgrading with Outsourcery to cloud-based Windows Server 2012 will provide benefits including:

  • Enterprise-grade scale and performance, so every application can be virtualised
  • Reduced storage costs and storage enhancements
  • The ability for remote users to more securely access internal resources without a Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Cost savings and increased efficiencies, with a comprehensive cloud platform
  • Solutions that enable a modern, innovative and flexible approach to working
