Backup's Role in Migration

Backup is a necessary insurance plan that protects a business from accidental loss of user data, database corruption, hardware failures, security threats and other issues that can occur during the migration process. When shifting to a new server operating system, backup plays a critical role in minimizing the downtime a business may face during and after the migration.

Launched in 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 has been a trusted operating platform for millions of small businesses. However, on July 14, 2015, Microsoft will terminate its support for the operating system. Today, Gartner estimates that eight million small and mid-sized businesses have yet to migrate to an updated system, with approximately 20 percent of those businesses expected to miss the upcoming cut-off date.

In an effort to support small businesses as they migrate to an updated system, David Maffei, vice president of sales at Carbonite offers insight on what end of life for Server 2003 will mean for your business in addition to tips on avoiding data loss through the migration process.
