Ensuring infrastructure success: Navigating the post-Windows Server 2012 Era

In the fast-paced world of technology, staying ahead of the curve is essential for maintaining optimal performance and security. With Windows Server 2012 reaching its end of support, companies must reassess and update their infrastructure to ensure a seamless and successful operation. In this blog post, we’ll explore key aspects of your company’s infrastructure that require attention and provide insights on navigating this evolving technological landscape.

Refresh Cycle: Products that have surpassed the 5-year mark may be due for a review and potential replacement. This is an opportune moment to assess the status of your hardware and verify warranties to guarantee continued reliability.

Server Optimization: Servers form the backbone of your infrastructure, influencing data processing speed and redundancy. Ensuring the optimal functionality of these critical components is paramount for maintaining seamless operations. Consider upgrading or replacing outdated servers to harness the latest technological advancements.

Networking Switch Efficiency: A well-functioning networking switch is vital for achieving maximum network speed and efficiency for connected devices. Regularly assess and update your networking switch to contribute to overall speed and enhance network efficiency, keeping your business operations running smoothly.

Network Security: Protecting your company’s network from cyber threats is non-negotiable. As you update your infrastructure, focus on enhancing network security measures to safeguard against ransomware. Implement protocols to prevent access to malicious websites and ensure a robust defense against evolving cyber threats.

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): Guard against harmful voltage spikes and data loss during blackouts by investing in a reliable Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). This essential component ensures continuous operation, preventing disruptions that can compromise the integrity of your network devices.

Storage Solutions: Empower your innovation with a universal storage layer. Upgrading your storage infrastructure enhances data security and provides a foundation for scalable and future-proof storage solutions.


As we bid farewell to Windows Server 2012, companies must proactively assess and update their infrastructure. Considering the key aspects mentioned above, you can ensure your company’s technology is primed for success in the ever-evolving landscape. Stay ahead of the curve, embrace innovation, and future-proof your infrastructure for continued success in the dynamic world of technology.
