Introduction to Windows Server 2000
Windows Server 2000 builds on the strong design of Microsoft Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, networking, file, and printing services with proven reliability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the mainstream networking appliances to offer a stable basis for integrating your business with the Internet.

Features of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 Not on Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows 2K Server offers a broad array of proven features not available on Microsoft's Windows NT servers. Highlights include:

  • Windows 2K Server, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all Microsoft's .NET servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 builds upon the core stability of the Windows NT OS platform that was first released in 1993, and which powers hundreds of millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly lowered support expense as a result of the ability to run desktop computers, laptops and servers with the same underlying operating system.
  • Management and system protection utilities to lower the expense and enhance the dependability of Microsoft Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop workstations by using centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from putting programs on their notebook or workstation, or even prohibiting them from Internet connectivity for users that have no business with such tools, can be a major efficiency gain for both your users and your network support staff.
  • In comparison with previous generations of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98 or Windows NT, Windows 2000 Server is a highly stable platform for hosting applications.
  • An integrated security and password design that builds upon a cohesive directory structure allows transparent and secure connectivity for onsite clients, mobile or off-site users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Greatly enhanced server and workstation administrative tools that ease the hassle of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing IT resources to enhance the service quality and responsiveness to users.
  • Extensive hardware and software compatibility as a result of being the “Standard” operating system.
  • Excellent accommodation for remote access users, at-home workers, and virtual clients, and especially for users that are often at the office but need the same degree of productivity when they are on the road. Features such as offline server folders allow clients transparent access to information even when they are not connected.
  • fault tolerance features, including disk mirroring, distributed files, and cluster configurations, increase server uptime and user efficiency.
