Microsoft Server 2003 End Of Life

Windows Server 2003 End of Life - Final Week

What does end of support mean for you? After July 14, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003 . . . that is only one week away!!!  Once support ends, your organization will almost certainly fail to meet industry wide compliance standards. Regulations such as HIPAA, PCI, SOX & Dodd-Frank all require regulated industries to run on supported platforms.

RWA has the answers.  It is still not too late to migrate away from Server 2003.  Just give us a call so we can help you stay current and secure!

Tubular Totality

The Tubes

Underwater fibre optic cables currently carry approximately 99% of global telecommunications and data traffic. In addition to Internet services, many important things in our lives such as food, clothing, electronics, news, transportation, health care, banking and global commerce are directly or indirectly made possible by this technology.

Continual advances in data compression and transmission techniques ensure there is plenty of capacity for future growth. Despite this, and the substantial installation costs, new cables are regularly laid to provide redundancy for uninterrupted connectivity.

But did you ever wonder where the technicians tunnel these magic sea tubes which help transport your trucked Internet? The following updated 2014 submarine communications cable map by Teleogeography shows current and planned global oceanic Internet cable connections. It really is happening under the sea.

 

Data flow management, network administration, cabling, data storage and disaster recovery require expertise. Every business is different, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. To learn more contact RWA today and schedule your free IT health check.
