The End of Support for the Windows Server 2003 family of products is 14th July 2015. On this date, all support for Windows Server 2003 will cease.
This is a great opportunity to upgrade and migrate to Windows Server 2012, or hosted services such as exchange email.
As we have now completed several upgrades for dental practices across the UK, we know how much of a difference the Windows 2012 server can make. We also know which versions work correctly ExAct or Carestream's Kodak R4, and most importantly which will cause a big problem.
The advancements in IT and technology since 2003 means that businesses in the dental industry now have more opportunities to innovate and adopt not only the benefits that come from the latest version of Windows Server (2012 R2), but also the adoption of cloud computing solutions such as cloud based email or online backup.
