This month issue of Redmond Magazine (March 2015 Vol.21 No.3) features a countdown to the critical Windows Server 2003 end of support deadline July 14, 2015. 32% of Redmond readers said that migrating their Windows Server 2003 systems is a top priority this year, but an estimated 65% will not finish all the server migrations by July 14.
The shift from 32-bit to a 64-bit operating system is probably the most significant challenge to deal with when migrating from Windows Server 2003 to a more current version. Identifying and ensuring application compatibility of all the applications you have running on older servers is a critical step. Microsoft provides tools for this purpose, but many administrator's have struggled with trying to get them to work.
In addition, the transition from Windows Server 2003 offers a significant opportunity to expand the use of application virtualization in enterprise organizations.
Administrators have depended on AdminStudio to help them transform the computing environment for years. From desktop and server migrations, to testing thousands of applications for compatibility and converting them into leading virtual formats. If you need help try the AdminStudio free trial.
