Kevin Remde and Eric Mills kick off a new 3 part series today as they discuss the upcoming End of Support for Windows Server 2003.  Tune in for part 1 as they discuss the reasons why you should migrate now to a supported operating system before its too late.

  • [1:27] Why is support ending for Windows Server 2003?
  • [2:49] So, what happens to our servers after that date?  How much support will we have?
  • [5:27] There was an R2 version of Server 2003 that came out a little while after.  Is this also EOS for 2003 R2?
  • [6:39] What happens if I’m running Server 2003 and don’t care about support? If it isn’t broke why should I fix it?
  • [10:37] Can you give us the elevator-pitch with a few good reasons for moving to Windows Server 2012 R2?
  • [15:22] What if I just can't afford to upgrade?
  • [16:49] What if I find some other company (not Microsoft) that offers to support Server 2003?  Is that sufficient?
