Windows Server 2003 End-of-Life is July 2015

Extended support for Windows Server 2003 ends July 14, 2015 which means all patches and security updates will end in July 2015. Now is the time to begin planning your migration to Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 R2. Migration time is a great time to utilize a datacenter for uptime as well as new hosted hardware without the upfront cost of buying new servers. We offer virtual and dedicated server options based on your needs.

You can upgrade an old operating system but we recommend starting with a fresh install of a newer operating system on newer server hardware made to run it. Riptide Hosting can set up a new server for you and provide a transition period for you to migrate to the newer OS. We can provide assistance with migrating data, cross-connecting the servers, providing IP address information, etc. If you have any questions give us a call.

One of the Riptide Differences is being able to quickly understand your requirements and offer solutions. Give us a call or visit our website at
