The time is counting down. Upgrade your Windows 2003 servers today!
Most IT administrators and outsourced IT companies are aware that Windows 2003 Server will be retired in July, 2015. Hopefully, you have either begun your planning, or decommissioned your 2003 server. This will not be as easy as replacing the Windows XP workstations, where you take one out, put one in, and transfer files. This will involve a whole lot more. First off, does your EMR run on anything but windows 2003? Do you have old applications that may or may not run on new equipment? How is your backup system? Is it tape? Will everything work on a new server? There are many things to consider when moving your mission critical applications off your server, and on to a new one.
Before you go buying a new server, this may be a good time to consider the cloud. It’s cheaper, more secure, and easy to access. Tier3MD has a private cloud for their customers so that they don’t have to go through the expense of building new hardware and backup systems. Plus, the restore time for your entire system is less than 30 minutes whereas doing a bare metal restore can take days. Contact our cloud team for more information.
