End for Windows Server 2003 support could push sales in 15


The expiration of extended support for Windows Server 2003 is analogous to support expiration for Windows XP in April, which prompted PC upgrades, said Forrest Norrod, general manager of servers.

Security in data centers is paramount so servers will likely be immediately upgraded once support ends for Windows Server 2003 and its various flavors, Norrod said.

Windows Server is the dominant OS and there could be up to 12 million Windows Server 2003 servers now in use, Norrod said.
