Businesses still running Server 2003 need to consider upgrading to Server 2012 as this deadline will not be extended. After July 2015 Microsoft will stop releasing patches to keep it secure and reliable, and any unpatched Server can put an entire network at risk.

Upgrading a Server is the most important upgrade to get right, minimising downtime and ensuring no data loss is critical.  So if you’re in any doubt about your Server or just need some advice, get in touch today.
