With Windows 2003 Server reaching end of life by July 2015 you need a good migration process in place and allow enough lead time otherwise your business may risk major disruptions.
Even if your Windows Server 2003 is stable at the moment after July 2015 you can expect:
- No security patches
- No reliability fixes
- Errors with security and stability of your applications
Draw your roadmap
The majority of businesses neglect to plan their server migration and upgrade with enough lead time, often rushing frantically near the end, resulting in a flawed migration. Start planning early and maximise the opportunity to embrace innovation, gain more efficiency and adopt benefits which come from available solutions, including hybrid, private and public cloud.

“The value of dealing with an HP Gold partner in this process can’t be underestimated. Datapac provide us with a local touch and can cover the full range of our IT requirements, but when there is a specific technical requirement like this, they can bring the specialist technical resources of HP to the table. HP and Datapac had a thorough discussion with us around our requirement - and had really done their homework - and then were able to provide us with a very highly specified test platform for us to prove the application on before we committed to purchase.”
Datapac understands our needs and requirements and has the expertise and experience to follow through on all our requests. Our constant need to reduce costs has been assisted by Datapac's ability to suggest alternative solutions and methods whilst improving both efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Datapac is akin to having an IT department on site that we simply could not provide ourselves.
