White Paper: A Smart Strategy for Windows Server Migrations
Application Readiness: A Standardized Approach to Simplify and Speed Server Migration
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 reached its end-of-life (EOL) in July 2015. Servers are no longer be receiving security updates, leaving critical business systems vulnerable to attacks. But, migrating to Windows Server 2012 is the kind of project that keeps IT managers awake at night. Why? It requires migrating hundreds and maybe even thousands of server applications. With so many applications and so much diversity, there is no doubt that compatibility issues will arise. Here are but a few examples:
- Windows Server 2012 folder locations are different from Windows Server 2003.
- User Account Control (UAC) causes applications that require administrator rights to behave differently.
- Resources Protection (WRP) can cause installation problems for custom installations.
- Windows Server 2012 requires Internet Explorer 10 or later and will cause problems with browser-based and Web applications.
Download this white paper to learn how to fast track your Windows Server 2012 migration and execute a broad range of compatibility, validation, and conflict tests, manage and remediate issues, to slash the time and effort required, and dramatically reduce migration costs.
