Continuing to use legacy systems can be a nightmare and a huge security risk to your business!
Windows XP, 2000, Windows Server 2003 are no longer supported by Microsoft. That means there are no more security updates, patches, or new features added. Not only that, if the current hardware that they run on fails, the hardware and drivers needed to run these legacy operating systems (OS) are hard to find or nonexistent.
There is a solution however. Ideally, upgrade to the latest OS and the latest version of all mission critical business applications. The cost and time needed for the upgrade will pay dividends in the long run!
Another solution is to continue to run legacy mission critical applications, but in a virtual environment on the latest server hardware and OS. This Virtual Machine solution has the advantage of allowing businesses to mitigate server or hardware failures and continue to “keep the doors open”. The added benefits of a virtual machine solution is it allows a business added time to evaluate new business applications available on the market and better plan for the eventual systems upgrade.
