Like a lot of businesses, you might be asking the question, “Is it time to upgrade my servers?”
You could be running short on performance or storage, or perhaps you have data security concerns. Organizations with aging servers and a variety of PC’s are good upgrade candidates. Others have cutoff dates to consider. With support ending this July, Windows Server 2003 users definitely need to upgrade to receive critical security updates.
If you fit the above, or your current server technology feels like it may be holding you back, it’s time for a technology refresh. Your best option, upgrade to Microsoft’s Windows Server 2012 R2.
