Announcing @AppZero_Inc Selected by GSK for WS2003 Modernization [#Cloud]

AppZero has the only automated tool on the market to migrate applications onto newer operating systems

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has licensed AppZero application migration software to move Windows Server 2003 applications onto a newer operating system.  Microsoft recommends AppZero for moving a variety of applications from Windows Server 2003, which reaches the end of extended support in July, 2015, to Microsoft's newer operating systems.

"AppZero facilitates fast, efficient migration of our Windows production applications onto our new environment, and we are very pleased with the results." said Robert Mattie, Director, Hosting Solutions at GSK.

As Windows Server 2003 reaches end of support in July 2015, enterprises need to move their applications onto a newer operating system, or find themselves at risk with no patches or security updates. According to a recent survey produced by AppZero, industry experts estimate that there are more than 10 million machines still running Windows Server 2003.  AppZero has the only automated tool on the market to migrate applications onto newer operating systems.
