Windows Server 2003 – end of support 7/14/2015

It is estimated that 44% of all Windows Server instances in small & medium businesses are still running Windows Server 2003 (<500 seats)

Like April 8, 2014 for Windows XP, on July 14, 2015 support from Microsoft will end for Windows Server 2003.
This means NO Critical or Security Updates will be released after that time.

This can also affect your compliance, when working with other organisations.

There are many upgrade options - do not wait to the last minute.
Contact Jefric Consulting to begin the process.

Support for Windows Server 2003 ending soon – act now.

Did you have a hard time moving beyond Windows XP in your office? Did the upgrade seem to take forever? Was the upgrade smooth and painless?

Just when you thought it was safe to turn on your computer, there is another time bomb ticking on Microsoft software, Windows Server 2003.

Just like April 8th, 2014 for Windows XP, on July 14, 2015 Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003. Unfortunately, server updates can be far more complex than desktops and require a lot more planning. Don’t get caught off guard, start now.

Are You Still Using Windows XP ?

Support for Windows XP ended April 8, 2014

Microsoft support for the Windows XP operating systems ended April 8, 2014. You may want to start thinking about trying and using Windows 7 or Windows 8. Don’t get caught running an unsupported operating system.

If you would like to learn more about your options, send me an e-mail and I will forward you a copy of the PDF: “Windows XP SP2 & Windows Vista RTM End of Support Information”
