July 14th 2015 – Server 2003/R2 End of Extended Supportwindow-image

What does this mean? Why should you move from SBS or Server 2003/R2 to Server 2012 R2?

  • No more updates
  • No more compliance (Compliance Audits may fail including PCI)
  • Discontinued support for many applications

Why Migrate and not Upgrade?

Provides a transition path from:

  • x86 to x64 OS (anything after Windows server 2008 is x64 only)
  • Physical to virtual (and vice versa)
  • Full server to server core (and vice versa)
  • Clean operating system installs
  • Reduces risk and downtime
  • OS installation and most migration tasks are performed while the source server is still live
  • Allows migration verification and performance benchmarking prior to bringing the target server “online”
  • Source server remains available for back out scenarios

If you are thinking about or are needing to migrate

Then should you be considering….

  • Virtualisation
  • Hosted Desktops or Web Based Applications
  • Office 365
  • Business Continuity
