    Server RefreshReasons to Upgrade

    Run an Updated, Supported Operating System

    On July 14, 2015, support ends for Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Will you be ready? If you're not currently planning a migration, you might not be prepared. With Microsoft, Lenovo can help you upgrade to a new solution through the Lenovo Windows Server 2003 End-of-Support Program. The program gives you the information and tools needed to help you and your reseller to migrate to new Lenovo servers running the latest Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system.

    Avoid 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.

    Meet Compliance Regulations

    Businesses subject to regulations, such as 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. Find out whether running end-of-life-software leads to compliance violations.

    Prevent Data Loss

    Critical data may be at risk. The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) estimates that up to a staggering 70 percent of small- to medium-sized businesses that experience catastrophic data loss will fail within 12 months.

    Protect Against Application Failure

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

    Reduce 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-generation Lenovo systems. Consider the cost of retaining aging infrastructure.
