As of July 14, 2015 Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003.

This will mean…

  • No updates developed or released after the end of support
  • No compliance with standards and regulations, which can be devastating

Your business needs to ensure it has a plan to migrate applications and workloads currently relying on Windows Server 2003 onto Windows Server 2012 R2 or Microsoft Azure.

Delaying will only create additional expenses for your business - Equiniti is here to help.

We have a strong track record of helping businesses move from Microsoft 2003, for example Northern Ireland’s Land and Property Service who service 785,000 ratepayers in Northern Ireland.

  • There are more than 9.1M physical servers running Windows Server 2003
  • 94 per cent of those running Windows Server 2003 intend to migrate, but only 24 per cent are ready to do so
  • 60 per cent of those running Windows Server 2003 do not have a migration plan in place

Equiniti has the experience to deliver your migration from Windows Server 2003 onto our data centres that will provide you with the security and reliability that you’ve experienced over the last decade.

‘Rigging’ your environments to detect intrusion, inclusion of more advanced firewalls, network segmentation, and so on, to simply isolate Windows Server 2003 servers will only result in a data centre that costs more, and is still out of compliance, and out of date. Not to mention the maintenance costs for aging hardware…

You’re just delaying your opportunity to transform.

For further information on transformation or to request a migration appraisal please contact Paul Lemon on 028 9045 4166 or via
