Windows Server 2003 End-of-Life and the value of FAST™ [Video]
by Talon on June 04, 2015
End of life for Windows Server 2003 is fast approaching. On July 14, Microsoft will no longer support any version of this operating system. This means no more security updates, no more technical support and no more software patches.
This end-of-life deadline has major implications because, despite its age, Windows Server 2003 remains widely used. In fact, Microsoft estimates that there are currently more than 11 million servers using this operating system. These organizations will immediately become extremely vulnerable to cyber attacks once end-of-life arrives. To stay safe, companies relying on Windows Server 2003 need to upgrade ASAP.
For such firms, Talon FAST™ is the ideal choice. The CloudFAST™ solution allows firms to consolidate services and storage at each branch office, reducing both costs and complexity in the process. At the same time, CloudFAST™ delivers an Intelligent File Cache at every branch, presenting all central file shares to the end users. By only caching what is actually needed for those users, CloudFAST™ simplifies the IT footprint at all those distributed locations.
