Introduction to Windows 2000 Server
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server is founded on the strengths of Windows NT technology, combining standards-based directory, application, networking, file, and print services with high reliability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the mainstream network hardware to offer dependable foundation for interfacing your corporate information system with the Internet.

Advantages of Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server Not on Microsoft's Windows NT
Windows Server 2000 provides a wide range of powerful features unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT systems. Highlights include:

  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000, Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all Microsoft's .NET servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows 2K Server builds upon the core dependability of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system that was first published in 1993, and is used in millions of applications globally.
  • Greatly reduced support expense due to the ability to power PCs, notebooks and servers with the identical core OS platform.
  • Administration and system protection tools to reduce the expense and improve the dependability of Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop computers by using centralized user policies, rights and setups. Keeping unauthorized users from putting programs on their laptop or desktop PC, or even restricting them from web connectivity for workers that have no need for such tools, can be a major productivity gain for both your users and your IT services group.
  • Compared to prior generations of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98, Windows 2K Server is a highly robust platform for hosting applications.
  • A built-in security and password design that builds upon a uniform directory architecture provides transparent and safe access for local users, mobile or off-site users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Significantly enhanced server and workstation management tools that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and workstations, allowing IT personnel to improve the service quality and attentiveness to users.
  • Broad hardware and software compatibility as a result of being the most widely used OS.
  • High quality support for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual clients, and especially for users that 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 information even when they are working offline.
  • high availability functionality, such as disk mirroring, distributed files, and server clustering, maximize server availability and worker efficiency.
