Microsoft is ending support for Windows Server 2003/R2 on July 14th 2015 – thus, for users of the server system, now is the time to upgrade, or face being left behind. Therefore, Microsoft recommends a four-step plan to migrating your Windows Server 2003, consisting of Discovery, Assessment, Targeting and Migration, Prestige IT understands the workload and time that this process takes, and hence how it can affect a client, including the security and stability of their IT network. Thus, Prestige IT’s Fast Track Service combines the latest discovery and assessment tools with Microsoft migration expert consultancy to deliver steps one to three within days rather than weeks. Therefore, providing the client with the service they require to ensure complete migration of their server system. We also keep the time and financial costs at a minimum.
Server migration is not a simple job, and the workload can cause excessive strain on internal IT teams.

Prestige IT’s Fast Track Service helps drive and thus accelerate migration sales for resellers, ensuring clients are operating on a fully supported Microsoft server as soon as possible.
The three steps are as follows:

- Discover all dependencies on the Windows 2003 infrastructure
- Define the scope of the migration
- Capture the performance metrics of the current IT infrastructure
