Windows Server 2003 end of life guide

by Computerworld

Following on from end of support for Windows XP in April 2014, we are now rapidly approaching Windows Server 2003 end of life. Despite Microsoft warning about end of life for Windows Server 2003 as early as April 2013, many organisations are yet to begin their migration away from the server platform. Worse still, many organisations and IT pros are unaware of the huge financial costs and security risks should they continue running Windows Server 2003 past the end of life date. Reports from HP claim that more than 11 million systems are still running Windows Server 2003. With fewer than 240 days left until end of life, this a huge problem as the estimated time required to migrate a datacentre of 100 or more servers can range from a minimum of three months and upwards of 18 months.

Homeland Security Sends Alert on Windows Server 2003 Risks

by The Wall Street Journal

The Department of Homeland Security this week issued an alert about the coming end-of-life for Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Server 2003, saying IT departments running unsupported software could open businesses up to elevated cybersecurity risks, hardware compatibility issues and potential compliance conflicts. Yet for many companies, an upgrade in the near future may not make business sense, one analyst says. CIO Journal reported in September that businesses worldwide were running an estimated 23.8 million physical and virtual instances of Windows Server 2003. At the time, analysts said many firms had been slow to migrate, and that it was unlikely every business would do so before Microsoft ends support on July 14, 2015. The technology is more common in industries like health care, government and utilities, as well as some retail point-of-sale systems.

Solution providers prep customers for Windows Server 2003 end of life

by Tech Target

Compared with the Windows XP transition, the migration from Server 2003 may be more laborious and complicated for solution providers. Adding to the challenges, customers' attitudes remain mixed -- despite Microsoft's looming deadline.It's like déjà vu all over again: Just as companies grappled with the end of Windows XP, the July 14 end-of-life date for all versions of Windows Server 2003 is approaching. With an estimated 20 million Server 2003 machines still in use and no word from Microsoft on whether it will offer extended support, solution providers have no small task ahead of them as they prep customers for a transition.

Prepare for Windows Server 2003's End of Support

by Redmond Magazine

Microsoft officially ends support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. The deadline has some of the same ramifications that the Windows XP deadline had: Microsoft will no longer patch Windows Server 2003 for new security vulnerabilities. Presumably, Microsoft will offer expensive Custom Support Agreements for enterprises to continue getting patch support after that date, but there's been no official announcement yet. In the meantime, new security vulnerabilities keep cropping up for the aging OS. During the last full year, 2013, Microsoft released 37 critical updates for Windows Server 2003.
