Why campus IT should make the switch before end-of-support; and what it takes for a successful implementation.
windows-server-implementation. One door closes, another opens.
That adage is apropos not only of the process of matriculation, but of the technology tools on which educational institutions rely. And one of those transitions is now upon us, as Windows 2003 nears its official “end of life” – that is, Microsoft’s termination of support, effective July 14, 2015 (as it happens, Bastille Day).
This is definitely a good news/bad news story, but the best news is that the good dramatically outweighs the bad. Windows Server 2012 is a more than worthy successor to Win 2003.
