Introduction to Microsoft's Windows Server 2000
Windows Server 2000 builds on the strengths of Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, networking, file, and print services with high reliability, efficient management, and compatibility with the mainstream networking appliances to provide dependable basis for interfacing your corporate information system with the Internet.

Advantages of Windows 2000 Server Not on Windows NT
Windows 2K Server offers a wide range of proven functions not available on Microsoft's Windows NT servers. Highlights include:

  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000, Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all .NET application servers.
  • Windows 2000 Server builds upon the fundamental stability of Microsoft's Windows NT OS platform that was first released in 1993, and which powers hundreds of millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly lowered support costs due to the ability to power desktop computers, laptops and servers with the identical core OS platform.
  • Management and security utilities to reduce the expense and enhance the reliability of Microsoft Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop workstations by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and setups. Keeping unauthorized users from putting programs on their notebook or desktop PC, or even prohibiting them from Internet access for users that have no need for such tools, can be a major efficiency advantage for both your clients and your IT services staff.
  • Compared to prior generations of Windows, such as Windows 98 or Windows NT, Microsoft's Windows 2K Server is a very robust environment for hosting applications.
  • An integrated protection and password model that builds upon a cohesive directory architecture allows transparent and safe connectivity for local clients, mobile or off-site users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Greatly enhanced server and workstation administrative utilities that ease the burden of maintaining servers and workstations, allowing support staff personnel 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 accommodation for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual clients, and particularly for users who are often at the office but need the same degree of efficiency when they are mobile. Functions like offline server folders allow clients seamless access to data even when they are working offline.
  • high uptime functionality, including disk mirroring, distributed file system, and cluster configurations, maximize server availability and user productivity.
