On July 14, 2015 Windows server 2003 will reach its end of life. Which means Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 2003 server. End of support means that no patches and no support. This includes the security updates like the 37 critical ones that were released in 2013. No safe heaven. Physical and virtual servers will be vulnerable to any and all the new security threats. And companies that run Windows 2003 and require compliances will not pass the compliance audit. Waiting is going to be risky and expensive.
It is not all doom and gloom. Leaving Windows 2003 is an opportunity for change. The latest Windows 2012 R2 is a great replacement for the Windows 2003. It is fast, secure and reliable. Advances in Windows 2012 will give you virtualization of compute, storage and networking along with enterprise level scalability and increase in performance.
