Windows Server 2003 servers will be around for a while

So we are getting down to the last week of Windows Server 2003 support. Are you going to miss the support? Only time will tell.

According to solutions provider CloudPhysics, Windows Server 2003 won’t be completely gone from data server centers until 2018. From tr inventory of client servers, 18% are still running Server 2003. That’s a big amount. [And I wouldn’t be surprised if there was the odd Server 2000 in there as well!]. The data trends was grabbed over a two year period ending June 2015.

This is just for a company that provides the metrics for virtual machines. There are probably millions on physical servers as well as virtual servers that weren’t count.

I’m sure there are many smaller companies who can’t afford upgrading every 8-10 years. Older companies have legacy applications to worry about.
