Introduction to Windows Server 2000
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 is founded on the strengths of Windows NT technology, combining popular directory, application, communications, file, and print services with proven reliability, efficient management, and compatibility with the mainstream networking hardware to offer dependable foundation for integrating your corporate information system with the Internet.

Advantages of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 Not on Microsoft's Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 offers a wide array of proven features unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT systems. Highlights include:

  • Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the basis for all Microsoft's .NET application servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 adds to the fundamental stability of Microsoft's Windows NT OS platform that was initially published in 1993, and is used in millions of applications globally.
  • Greatly reduced support costs due to the ability to power PCs, laptops and servers with the same underlying OS platform.
  • Administration and security tools to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of Microsoft Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop workstations by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from putting software on their notebook or desktop PC, or even prohibiting them from Internet connectivity for users that have no need for such tools, can be a huge efficiency gain for both your clients and your network support staff.
  • Compared to prior releases of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98 or Windows NT, Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 is a highly stable environment for hosting applications.
  • A built-in security and password model that is founded on a uniform directory structure provides transparent and safe connectivity for local clients, mobile or remote users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Greatly enhanced server and workstation management utilities that reduce the hassle of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing support staff resources to improve the service quality and attentiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and application compatibility as a result of being the most widely used operating system.
  • Excellent support for remote access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and especially for users who are often working at the office but require the same level of efficiency when they are on the road. Functions like offline server folders give users transparent availability of information even when they are working offline.
  • service continuity functionality, including disk mirroring, distributed files, and server clustering, increase server uptime and user productivity.
