In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
"Up-Level" Migration of WS 2003 Apps to Newer Platforms
"Up-Level" Migration of Windows Server 2003 Applications to Newer Platforms and Clouds Has Never Been Easier, AppZero Whitepaper

Businesses that need to migrate soon-to-be unsupported Microsoft Windows Server 2003 applications to newer operating systems and the cloud  can learn the essentials by downloading  AppZero's new whitepaper on "Up-Level migration," a container-based approach to application migration that is proving ten times faster and more reliable than alternatives. Available from AppZero, "Migrating from WS2003 to Newer Operating systems and the Cloud" demonstrates how IT and business groups can work together to upgrade their server applications in ways that benefit all.  Customer successes at healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, investment banks and manufacturers have led leading tech vendors such as Dell, IBM and HP to use AppZero for application migration, whether for modernizing datacenters or adopting the cloud.

Microsoft ends support of WS2003 on July 14, 2015. Organizations that fail to upgrade their Windows 2003 servers face increased cybersecurity risks because Microsoft will no longer issue security updates after the end of support period, making business and other applications more vulnerable to attack.

Up-Level Migration Defined
The new whitepaper examines how Up-Level migration of Windows Server applications creates portable containers separate from the underlying OS for provisioning apps from datacenters to and across any cloud, with no lock in. Automating the process of moving to a new OS is much easier when the application and its data are separated from the OS, the whitepaper explains. With separation of applications from the OS, companies moving to clouds are no longer stuck with simply moving data center-focused infrastructure, tools and processes to the cloud, but can adopt cloud-based operational tools and modernize the operating system at the same time. This approach works equally well when moving any Windows Server application to any hardware or managed environment.

In this whitepaper, IT and business organizations will learn the essentials of Up-Level migration of WS2003 applications, including:

- How WS2003 end of support on July 14, 2015, can affect the enterprise, how to determine risks, and what, when and why to move workloads and applications off aging server Operating Systems;

- How to implement a migration plan, with step-by-step examples for moving some or all of workloads/applications from server to server -- or to public, private or hybrid clouds;

- How Up-Level migration using container-based migration software can be used to encapsulate even complex server applications into virtual application appliances (VAAs) to quickly deploy WS2003 applications to any machine or cloud.

About AppZero:

AppZero ( is the fastest, most flexible way to move server applications to and across any cloud or datacenter, without code change or lock-in. Encapsulating Windows applications in VM/OS-free packages, AppZero's patented software moves complex server applications with ease.  AppZero allows you to move from an old OS to a newer one, with the click of a button - modernize and move to the cloud in one step.

About Adine Deford
Adine Deford is the CMO for AppZero – the fastest and most flexible way to move workloads across clouds and datacenter servers, without re-engineering, re-installation, or lock-in. With more than two decades of technology marketing experience, she has a deep understanding of the power of “trigger events” in launching disruptive technologies. She predicts that the end of life for Windows Server 2003 scheduled for July 2015, will be the event that puts application migration, particularly cloud migration on the map.
