Windows Server 2003 EOS is an opportunity to transition from the past to the present. It will take work but that work will pay dividends in the form of better reliability, lower cost, higher availability, and increased scalability.
How Veeam Availability Suite can help you to migrate?
The Veeam Availability Suite can assist you in the form of data protection through backup, and the reduction of downtime through testing in virtual lab environments as you plan and implement migrations from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2.
There are millions of instances of Windows Server 2003 still in operation today and Microsoft has officially announced the end of support (EOS) on 15 July 2015.
The clock is ticking and you have less than a year to make the transition from a 32 bit, physical, Client/Server operating system to a 64 bit, virtual, cloud OS. The process seems daunting but can be accomplished, with a little help.
We have included a webinar presented by Chris Henley who is one of the leading Solution Architects at Veeam. Chris explains in detail how Windows Server 2003 Migrations can be made easy with Veeam. The webinar can be accessed here.
Watch this session and learn:
- Side by side migration techniques
- Tools to easily migrate from Physical to Virtual machines
- Strategies to minimize downtime and data loss
We are also offering our customers a ‘Free’ site assessment which will enable us to gain a better understanding of your environment and to gauge the overall effort required to get you from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2 with minimal impact to your business.
