By now you are no doubt fully aware that support for Windows Server 2003/R2 will be discontinued on July 14, 2015 . Many of our customers are looking at the alternatives right now and – for some – it is not an easy decision. We want to remind you that there are often silver linings to every cloud (pun intended) …

The end of support for Windows Server 2003/R2 could signal the beginning of a new stage in the evolution of your IT organization. You have the opportunity to transform your datacenter and open up a whole new world for your business.

Microsoft envisions a datacenter without boundaries—where you can extend beyond the resources you have on-premises to more easy-to-use use cloud resources when you need them. Rapidly build new global-scale applications or websites. Scale infrastructure at a moment’s notice to meet the most demanding business requirements. And reduce the cost of storage, backup, and recovery.

Microsoft technologies offer another great advantage: dynamic delivery of applications. The goal of creating infrastructure is to help your IT professionals respond to the needs of the business more quickly and with greater agility. With the power of automation, IT professionals are equipped to provision, deploy, monitor, and manage nearly everything—applications and infrastructure—from a consistent platform across clouds.

This datacenter transformation is driven by Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Office 365.

We will be happy to explain how migration from Windows Server 2003/R2 can shift your business to a new world, and how our migration offerings can help you transform your datacenter more efficiently and with minimal disruption. Contact us for more information.
