Microsoft has announced that they are ending support for Windows Server 2003 this July. Luckily, migrating doesn’t have to be a headache for users with systems built using InduSoft Web Studio.
This IDC Whitepaper offers some compelling reasons to get current, most notably for security reasons. With any non-supported software, new security exploits will not be patched, and you may be opening your system up to malicious breaches. In addition, it may become impossible to take advantage of modern cloud options.
Luckily, InduSoft Web Studio has always made updating applications easy. InduSoft Web Studio supports Windows Server editions 2008 and 2012, and will support future versions of Windows Server. HMI/SCADA applications made with older versions of InduSoft Web Studio are also 100% compatible in future versions.
If you’ve decided that it’s time to migrate the system your InduSoft Web Studio application is running on, now is a perfect time to upgrade InduSoft Web Studio as well. Your HMI/SCADA application will still run in InduSoft Web Studio v7.1 and newer, no matter what version you are using now.
Don’t risk the integrity of your data by relying on unsupported software. Now’s the best time to update your operating systems and InduSoft Web Studio applications if you’re not up to date.
