Overview of Windows 2K Server
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server builds on the strengths of Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, networking, file, and printing services with high stability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the cost-effective networking hardware to provide a stable foundation for interfacing your corporate information system with the Internet.

Features of Windows 2K Server Unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 offers a broad array of powerful functions not available on Microsoft's Windows NT servers. These include:

  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the basis for all Microsoft's .NET application servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 builds upon the fundamental stability of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system that was first released in 1993, and is used in hundreds of millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly reduced management costs as a result of the ability to run desktop computers, laptops and servers with the identical core OS platform.
  • Management and system protection tools to lower the cost and enhance the reliability of Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop computers by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Keeping unauthorized users from installing software on their laptop or workstation, or even restricting them from web access for users that have no business with such tools, can be a huge efficiency gain for both your clients and your network services group.
  • In comparison with prior generations of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98, Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server is a highly robust platform to host line-of-business programs.
  • An integrated security and password design that builds upon a uniform directory architecture allows transparent and secure access for onsite users, mobile or off-site users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Significantly improved server and workstation management tools that ease the hassle of supporting servers and desktops, allowing IT resources to enhance the service level and responsiveness to clients.
  • Broad hardware and application compatibility as a result of being the most widely used operating system.
  • Excellent support for off-site access users, at-home workers, and virtual clients, and particularly for users who are sometimes at the office but need the identical degree of productivity when they are mobile. Functions such as offline server folders allow clients seamless availability of data even when they are not connected.
  • service continuity features, such as disk mirroring, distributed files, and cluster configurations, maximize server availability and worker efficiency.
