Microsoft Support will end on the 14th of July 2015!

26th February 2015

For more than a decade, businesses such as yours have been leveraging Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003 technologies and getting a great return on their investment.

Microsoft Support will end on the 14th of July 2015!

Now is the time to lay the IT foundation of your business for the next decade and beyond.

What is Windows Server 2003 end of support?
Support for Windows Server 2003 will end on 14th July 2015. This means Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, fixes or online support for Windows Server 2003 after this date. To prevent possible disruptions to your business, we strongly recommend that existing customers migrate to a modern server operating system.

Why should you upgrade?

Reduce costs and get the most out of your IT investment
Run more applications on a single server, helping save on hardware costs and power bills, with built-in virtualisation from Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 R2. Further reduce capital expenses by leveraging infrastructure cloud services such as Azure, instead of purchasing new hardware, Microsoft’s public cloud platform, wherever it makes sense for your business.

Know you’re open for business even if disaster strikes
40 percent of businesses never reopen after disaster strikes. Get effective data backup, cut data loss and recover quickly without significant capital investment in hardware and backup media through Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft Azure’s automated backup solution.

Get easy and cost-effective data storage
You work with all kinds of files and data today, from presentations, to spreadsheets, to photos and videos. Consolidate and maximise use of existing storage infrastructure, and control storage costs resulting from expanding data requirements. Virtualize your storage and deliver reliable and scalable SAN-like storage solutions at a fraction of the cost Storage Spaces technologies built-into Windows Server 2012 R2.
