After July 14th 2015 Windows Server 2003 will no longer receive IT support or receive security updates from Microsoft. This covers all versions of the software and without security updates, the software simply isn’t safe to use. If your business is still running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 then it’s definitely time to make the chance to a newer version and put a migration strategy into place.
It could be that your datacentre is only equipped to handle Windows Server 2003 and therefore you’re looking at an upgrade of both software and hardware. Whilst this can seem costly, it will benefit your business in the long run and if you find a recycling partner such at Buy IT Back, you can receive cash for your old server hardware, in exchange for it being resold or responsibly recycled.
Professional Server Hardware Recycling
Within a few months of Windows Server 2003 no longer receiving support it will become a serious security risk and a compliance nightmare for your business. Windows Server 2003 is outdated but for many businesses it has been completely functional and they have seen no need to change but now it has truly become imperative.
Alongside the software change there is bound to be a huge switch in hardware, as a lot of server equipment will need to be recycled. Businesses should take advantage of the opportunity to upgrade but of course, the business still has a responsibility to handle the old equipment responsibly and ensure it is recycled in a way which complies with EU and British recycling legislation.download film C’est beau la vie quand on y pense
