Windows Server 2003 End-of-Life
In an effort to ensure our customers are utilizing secure and supported software, we are reminding you that extended support for Windows Server 2003 will end on July 14, 2015, at which point Server 2003 will become end-of-life. This means Server 2003 will no longer receive security patches, general Windows updates, or any support from Microsoft.
What this means for you:
As Microsoft will be dropping all support for Server 2003 and no longer providing security patches, support from MasseyMedia, Inc. will be limited for this OS. This is to ensure our customers are on a secure platform, so we can continue to offer a high level of support.
What are my options?
We have a few options when it comes to handling the end-of-life. Give us a call to discuss the best options for your business.
- Upgrade to Server 2012 / SQL Server 2014 / Exchange 2014 - This may necessitate new hardware.
