6 implications of not migrating off of Windows Server 2003
Microsoft will officially end support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. While many firms are working to migrate their applications and data off aging servers as quickly as possible, a fair number are not migrating for a variety of reasons including the financial cost.
“One of the top barriers to migration is the fact there is no immediate need, because if it’s not broken don’t fix it. There is some complacency there and people aren’t paying attention to the risk. Some assume that they are behind a firewall and think since no one can get into their network they have a false sense of security,” said Peter Tsai, content marketing manager with Spiceworks, makers of IT management software.
