Windows Server 2003 in Azure

We are considering moving a number of servers to Azure. They are a mixture of 2003 and 2003 R2.

Will 2003 run in Azure and are there any limitations other than the fact that the operating system itself has gone end of life and Microsoft won't support it directly any more?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can, but I would not as you would not get any security updates or support for it at the OS level
