Moving old applications from your unsupported legacy servers is a big step forward in your IT journey. It opens the door to numerous exciting possibilities. While it’s true that unsupported older legacy servers come with some challenges, here’s why you should look forward to the transition:
- A Fresh Start: Upgrading your server infrastructure means you’re ready for a fresh start. Legacy applications running on outdated servers can hold your organization back, but by moving these applications to modern supported servers, you’re saying goodbye to old, inefficient technology and welcoming in the new.
- Enhanced Security: Yes, older applications can be vulnerable, but by moving these old applications to a modern supported operating system, you’re actively taking steps to enhance your security. With modern DevSecOps processes and the latest security measures available on a modern server with a supported operating system, you’re protecting your data and your organization against potential security threats and exposures.
- Improved Efficiency: Outdated servers are slow and inefficient. By moving these applications, you’re streamlining your operations and making your new servers scalable and more efficient. Modern servers not only improve productivity but also reduce the costs of managing your IT infrastructure; the costs associated with server maintenance and fixes are reduced, and server efficiency is improved as is the ability to manage OS and software upgrades.
- Legal Compliance: Moving legacy applications to new modern supported servers helps your IT organization address IT Audit and Compliance concerns. It also lets you use the latest versions of security and anti-virus software to harden and secure your servers. Modern security tools reduce security exposures so you can minimize breach exposures and focus on growing your business without the fear of penalties.
