The official end of life is 14th July 2015. This means Microsoft will longer support the software, and any security or compatibility issues that arise after that date will not be addressed. If your business is still using Windows Server 2003 after July 14, then you are taking a potentially very expensive, and unnecessary, risk.
These security breaches should make you very wary of your own organisations security protocols. Can you really afford to have unsupported and potentially vulnerable servers in your network? Organisations that are still running Windows Server 2003 now face an increased risk of security breaches, according to experts, and are also likely to fall foul of IT governance regulations stipulating that firms should use the most current versions of software.
