FCW : October 2014
If your agency still relies on Windows Server 2003, the time to think about migrating is now. Waiting is dangerous; Microsoft will stop supporting the operating system in July of 2015, and the company estimates that an average Windows Server migration takes at least 200 days to complete. Yet according to a survey by HP and Microsoft, 60 percent of impacted customers don’t have a plan for migration. Since 2003, many agency systems have come to depend on the powerful operating system, which provided many capabilities that the federal government relied on, including advanced security. But as requirements changed and agencies began to require faster processing, adopt virtualization and mobile technology, and deal seriously with big data, Windows Server 2003 began to show its age. When Microsoft stops supporting Windows Server 2003, it will mean that the system is frozen in time— much more vulnerable to falling out of compliance with applicable security regulations. declining performance and increased security risk. Even if older servers are supported by current Windows Server drivers—and many aren’t— are more than four years old, and that those aging servers contribute only about four percent of the total performance capabilities of the data center while consuming 65 percent of the overall energy. In addition to spending more money on supporting outdated servers and software, agencies also will begin to run into problems trying to deliver new services on older servers. Older servers don’t based services, or the addition of mobile devices to the infrastructure. These newer solutions require more processing power than ever before. “Unfortunately, some data center managers make the mistake of assuming that the enhanced intelligence of today’s platforms and operating systems (including Windows Server 2012 R2) somehow offset the role of the hardware,” said a recent Frost & Sullivan report. “Thus, they continue intelligently managed system.” The good news is that upgrading the hardware along with the software doesn’t cost that much more than upgrading the software alone. That’s because there is no direct upgrade path for the operating system; it requires reinstalling the operating system, since the older software is based on the hardware cost is very small since that cost is shared by the other virtual instances on the physical system.
