Migrating and modernizing Microsoft Windows Server applications is a daunting task for many IT organizations. During the last 15 years, physical and virtual server platforms have exploded in number and diversity. Most DevOps teams struggle to manage a mix of Windows applications running on a diversity of 2000, 2003, 2008 and 2012 OS servers. Maintaining production applications across this diversity of environments has become an operational headache. With WS2000 platforms already beyond End of Service (EOS) and WS2003 platforms running in the final 2 years of extended support, the pressure is building from compliance teams and end users to reduce risk, save money, improve performance and modernize these servers and applications.

We all procrastinate
When it comes to maintenance and busy work (disagreeable chores), we all procrastinate. Delaying mundane chores to focus on new creative work, is human nature.
In the Information Technology (IT) world, no task seems more mundane and irritating than patching and upgrading an operating system (OS). We’re all bugged by those persistent messages to patch and re-boot our OS.
