Will you be ready when Microsoft® ends support for Windows® Server 2003 on July 14th, 2015? If you're not already migrating, you may not be. If you are running Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 on older servers, you're running 10 year old technology.

Together with Microsoft, Lenovo is now offering the Lenovo Windows Server 2003 End of Support Program to provide you with the information and tools needed to help you, and the reseller you work with today, to migrate your Microsoft Windows® Server 2003 environment to new ThinkServer systems running the latest Windows® Server 2012 R2 OS.

5 Reasons to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 with Lenovo ThinkServer NOW!
Security Breaches
Security patches and updates for Windows® Server 2003 will no longer be available. Older servers will be more vulnerable to malicious attacks. Your data and your Intellectual Property will be at risk.

Businesses subject to regulations, like Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, and PCI, may face stiff penalties and huge fines. In addition, businesses that accept credit cards may lose their merchant privileges, if they continue to run on an unsupported Operating System.*

Data Loss
Critical data may be at risk. FEMA estimates that up to 70% of small to medium businesses that experience catastrophic data loss will fail within 12 months.**

Application Failure
Applications may not be recoverable if the OS fails. Users will not have access to the tools they need to work, which could paralyze business operations.

Sky-rocketing Operating Costs
Older servers are more expensive to operate and maintain. They fail more often, consume more power, generate more heat, and take up more space than the latest ThinkServer servers.
