Microsoft has officially announced that on July 15, 2015, Windows Server 2003 will no longer be supported! In almost every case, if we want to preserve applications, data and services while moving from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2, the ONLY available options are migrations—not upgrades.

As you plan and implement migrations from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2, NEW Veeam Availability Suite™ v8 gives you data protection during backup and reduced downtime when testing in virtual lab environments.
