5 Steps For Windows Server 2003 End of Life Success
On July 14, 2015 Microsoft will end support for Windows Sever 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2. Like Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 continues to be used and relied upon by organizations worldwide with as many 10 million Windows Server 2003 systems still in production.
Once Windows Server 2003 has reached end-of-life, Microsoft will no longer deliver or develop security updates and critical patches.
While many organizations are prepared and will be able to upgrade all impacted systems to Windows Server 2012 R2 by the deadline, as many as 62% of organizations will either be unable to or unprepared to upgrade all of these devices before this date, leaving as many as several million systems vulnerable to attack.
