Help with Your Windows 2003 Migration

Most Windows Server 2003 owners don’t realize how complicated it will be to upgrade.  They are underestimating what they are up against.  The biggest complication in not upgrading is the increase in support costs in keeping up with security.  Windows Servers run systems that are the heart of organizations – including ERP, finance, accounting, manufacturing and more.  Although server systems are generally thought to be isolated from external attackers, that won’t be the case as new hacks built or vulnerabilities discovered will have to be figured out on your own.

A personal computer is one thing, but a server is a totally different story.  The additional steps include adding intrusion detection software, more advanced firewalls and network segmentation.  Gartner put out a brief saying that an organization that plans to continue to run Windows Server 2003 past the deadline should budget an additional $1500 per year per server to cover the security costs. 

The official website of the Department of Homeland Security has issued an alert also. 

Even if your Windows 2003 server is stable, you do not want to risk running your applications on a server that will not be supported.  And don’t wait until the last minute to migrate, as this will result in problems, errors or inconsistencies with security, stability or functional issues within the applications that make your organization run.
