Windows Server 2003
End of Support Consultation & Planning
If you’re still running Windows Server 2003, you’re going to want to read this. On July 14th 2015, Microsoft officially ended the lifecycle of the platform.
With a wide variety of risks associated with going unsupported, it is highly important to find a replacement.
And Metro CSG can help you do it!
For businesses running unsupported platforms, we offer time sensitive migration services into Azure and Windows Server 2012:
Upgrade to Azure
This highly scalable cloud platform allows you to choose the storage that you need for your business when you need it, all for a predictable monthly cost. In the cloud, your users will be able to enjoy anywhere/anytime access to your data and automatic backup services to protect it.
Upgrade to Server 2012
Best suited for organizations using their datacenter for a diverse set of functions, Server 2012 presents all around improvements to the Windows Server platform. With the latest trends kept in mind, 2012 is cloud ready and enables customized application deployment. This version is supported through 2023.

You may think migrating can be put off until it's absolutely necessary, but here’s the thing:
It's absolutely necessary right now!
Industry standards require servers to be kept up to date for continued use. Inability to comply can cost you a fortune in fines and lost business.
Developers are not obligated to support your system and will cease to provide updates. A lack of continued updates will reduce performance.
Bugs run rampant on unsupported platforms. These flaws can leave your data highly vulnerable to online theft and catastrophic losses.
Essentially, end of support means that every connection your server has with the outside world is be severed, with you on your own to manage it. Over time, your hardware becomes increasingly unstable, requiring maintenance costs far exceeding those of replacement.
