Yes.

Currently, there are approximately 5 million+ Windows Server 2003 users worldwide.
Q: Are there advantages to moving to the Cloud as a solution, other than the fact that Windows Server 2003 is now obsolete?
Absolutely. Not only does it give businesses the opportunity to customize a Cloud system to their needs, the efficiency, accessibility and adaptability are superior to using an onsite server. Additionally, there are many back-up systems and security options a Cloud solution offers, at a fraction of the cost of an onsite server, is a wonderful solution for any business.
