Ahead of the July 2015 deadline for the end of Windows Server 2003 support, Dell Services has announced the new Windows Server 2003 Migration Service in India.
The service is expected to help customers in their Windows Server migration process, while ensuring all necessary checkpoints on their migration list are answered, Dell said.
Dell first announced Windows Server 2003 migration support services in June this year.
During the transition to new Windows Server, companies have to address specific pain points, including assessing their current needs and future demands, finding the proper solutions for legacy applications and identifying which workloads can be moved to the cloud, Dell said.
According to Microsoft, server migration will take at least 200 days and application migration may take more than 300 days.
“Our strategy for Windows Server Migration involves helping customers transform their IT infrastructure by taking into consideration their end-to-end needs in the vertical they operate in,” said Bobby Mon, director – GSD, Dell India. “Our robust migration services portfolio helps customers cater to migration needs from the datacenter to the endpoint.”
“We are providing customers with a unique solution that helps them rank and classify their migration pathway; thereby giving customers of all workloads an opportunity to optimize and drive efficiency,” said Mon.
