Join Microsoft celebrity Jerry Nixon and Uncommon Solutions as we say goodbye to Windows Server 2003. End of Support is July 14th 2015 and its time to retire this steady workhorse. Jerry will show off Windows 10 - The core to all of Microsoft OS's. You will get to see Microsoft Azure technologies that can help you migrate your Windows Server 2003 workloads. We will show off NEW features in Office 365 and will give away a Microsoft Band!
There will be light appetizers done only the way Dave and Busters can! 1/2 Price premium well drinks and 1.00 draft beers - (free all you can drink non-alcoholic beverages). Play some ping pong or pool with Microsoft or challenge Uncommon engineers to some video games all on us.
In July 2010, Microsoft transitioned from providing mainstream support for Windows Server 2003 to releasing critical patches only. July 14, 2015 marks another transition, this time the end of Microsoft support for Windows Server 2003/R2. While this date may seem distant, now is the time to understand that the end of support and the end of life of Windows Server 2003 means that your business needs to ensure that it has a plan to migrate the applications and workloads currently relying on Windows Server 2003 onto Windows Server 2012 R2 or Microsoft Azure.
Just to be clear, End-of-Support for Windows Server 2003 means:
No Updates will be developed or released after the end of support.
No Compliance and lack of compliance with standards and regulation can be devastating.
No safe haven because virtualized and physical instances of Windows Server 2003 will be vulnerable.
We urge you to start your planning to migrate off of Windows Server 2003 and onto a platform that will provide you the security and reliability that you’ve experienced over the last decade with Windows Server 2003, with the added value of the features now included in Windows Server 2012 R2, as well as the hybrid opportunities available to you with Microsoft Azure.
We hope you can join us March 26th from 4-7pm at Dave and Busters 2000 South Colorado Blvd, Denver Co 80222
