HP-Microsoft announce joint program to help partners assist their customers migrating from WS2003


Do you have SMB customers who are still running applications on Windows Server 2003? As you know, Microsoft has announced that WS2003 will reach the end of extended support on July 14, 2015. So, what does this mean for your customers? It means that after July 14, 2015, they will no longer have security, support, or technical updates for Windows Server 2003. This will affect businesses of all sizes that are still running applications on WS2003 but there is no need to worry!


Today at WPC we’ve just heard from Jim Ganthier, HP Servers Global Marketing VP, HP’s announcement of a new program in conjunction with Microsoft to help our partners assist their customers who are migrating from WS2003.




Migrating from Windows Server 2003 is not an option… it is a necessity! While a product’s end-of-life can be expensive, disruptive, and full of risk, with HP your customers can transition cost-effectively, quickly, and with confidence. As Microsoft ends support for WS2003, your customers will turn to you to help them assess, plan, and implement their migration. The HP Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Migration Program will help you rapidly and safely meet their needs with reduced risk and cost, increased return on investment, and fast implementation.


Together, HP and Microsoft offer customers a complete portfolio of IT product solutions, industry-leading services, support, training, and financing, providing best in class solutions for customers as they transform and expand their business environments.

-          Windows Server 2012 Migration Dual Usage Solution helps simplify your customer’s migration by providing flexibility around the transition time period

-          HP Pre- Provisioning Solution allows customers to acquire up to 12 months of planned capacity upfront, and only paying as it is used

-          HP SMB Flex-Bundles with Microsoft’s Azure as a Cloud backup solution

-          Customized IT Investment Solutions deliver predictable payment options that align to current and future growth plans

-          Asset Recovery Services ensures the secure removal of data from old technology and establishes resale opportunities that can provide a capital infusion to help fund the transition

-          HP Enterprise Services and Technology Services  teams work collaboratively with clients to assist them with service assessments, application development or remediation, and client migrations to help them modernize their server and data center environment
