Therefore, if any business is in e-commerce (i.e., has a website with a shopping cart), then there was a very high possibility of using the Windows Server 2003 operating system. Windows Server 2003 is heading towards its end of life (EOL) this coming July, yet a new study shows that just a small fraction of users have already migrated to a new solution. Microsoft says there are 11 million Windows Server 2003 servers are still running.
End of support means there will be no security updates, no compliances, and no safe haven - cautioned Vasily Malanin, Microsoft's Asia-Pacific data center product management lead for cloud and enterprise, during a media briefing in Singapore.
