Because the server you choose affects your Windows Server migration
Server support for Microsoft WinServer 2003 R2 ends next month. After July 14, 2015, security patches for Windows Server 2003 R2 will no longer be available, and your outdated servers will be vulnerable to malware and intrusions.
If you are still running Windows Server 2003 R2 anywhere in your organization, you need to act now.
Replacing your outdated infrastructure is essential for compliance-dependent business continuity. And updating your servers is cost-efficient, since aging infrastructures are more expensive to maintain. Lenovo’s modern infrastructure can support the growing demands of modern apps, as well as remote and mobile users.
Of course, the demands of new applications are far beyond what many older servers can provide. It is essential to have the performance and responsiveness your business needs. Lenovo servers running Intel® Xeon® E5 processors and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 can increase performance more than 5x when compared to platforms from 2007 running on Windows Server 2003.
Using Lenovo ThinkServer and System x servers, your IT group can replace multiple older servers and consolidate them onto fewer, newer servers using Windows Server 2012’s virtualization capability. This function has been enhanced to support more demanding applications that have resisted prior virtualization attempts.
The latest next gen Lenovo servers offer far greater I/O and storage flexibility and capacity. Lenovo’s servers are equipped with the latest Intel Xeon processors, so they offer larger cache sizes, improved system responsiveness, and superior performance – so more employees can work at the same time, with faster access to business critical information while working in branch and other remote locations.
