On July 14, 2015, Microsoft stopped developing for and supporting Windows Server 2003. If your firm is still relying on this operating system, it’s time to consider the cloud as a real option. Right now your 2003 server is being exposed to break-ins and viruses, putting your firm at risk. A recent government announcement urges companies to upgrade their servers as soon as possible.

    We just upgraded from 2003 to 2012. Why does Microsoft make a product and then not support it, and then force you to spend money to upgrade? The same thing happens with Office. These upgrades kill my firm every 5 years.

      Microsoft generally doesn’t support a product for more than 10 – 15 years and truthfully I can’t blame them. As times change so do security needs and some of these old Operating Systems are just un-patchable when it comes to modern security vulnerabilities. Unfortunately these upgrades are a necessary evil of IT. They’re annoying and costly but necessary none the less. With that said, I hear your pain.
