Windows Server 2003 support
ends in:

Microsoft has announced that it will stop support for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on July 15, 2015. Upgrading to Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 is the perfect time to switch to a system that was designed for virtualization from the ground up. It is a system deeply integrated with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft System Center, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Microsoft PowerShell. Now is the time to switch to the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS).


  • Consolidate servers to reduce power consumption, cabling costs, and rack space.
  • Remove expensive third-party virtualization licenses with Windows Server 2012 R2's built-in capabilities and flexible licenses.
  • Use Cisco UCS and Microsoft's private cloud solution to increase server use.


  • Configure servers in minutes with Cisco UCS Manager service profiles and Microsoft System Center and PowerShell.
