Overview of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000
Windows Server 2000 builds on the strong design of Microsoft Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, communications, file, and printing services with high reliability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the mainstream network hardware to provide dependable foundation for integrating your corporate information system with the Internet.

Advantages of Windows 2000 Server Unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server provides a broad range of powerful features unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT systems. These include:

  • Microsoft's Windows 2K Server, Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the basis for all .NET servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server builds upon the core dependability of Microsoft's Windows NT OS platform that was initially published in 1993, and is used in hundreds of millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly lowered management costs due to the ability to run desktop computers, laptops and servers with the same underlying operating system.
  • Management and security utilities to lower the expense and enhance the dependability of Windows 2000 and Windows XP desktop computers by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from installing software on their notebook or workstation, or even restricting them from Internet access for workers that have no business with such tools, can be a major productivity advantage for both your users and your IT services staff.
  • In comparison with previous generations of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows NT, Windows 2K Server is a very stable platform to host applications.
  • A built-in protection and password design that is founded on a uniform directory structure provides transparent and secure connectivity for local clients, mobile or remote users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Greatly improved server and workstation administrative tools that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and workstations, freeing IT resources to improve the service level and attentiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and software compatibility thanks to being the most widely used operating system.
  • High quality support for off-site access users, at-home workers, and virtual users, and particularly for users who are often working at the office but need the identical degree of productivity when they are mobile. Features such as offline server folders allow users seamless access to data even when they are not connected.
  • fault tolerance features, including disk mirroring, distributed files, and cluster configurations, maximize server uptime and worker productivity.
