Overview of Windows Server 2000
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server builds on the strengths of Microsoft Windows NT technology, combining popular directory, application, networking, file, and printing services with high stability, efficient management, and compatibility with the mainstream networking appliances to provide dependable foundation for integrating your corporate information system with the Internet.

Features of Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server Not on Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 provides a broad range of powerful functions unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT systems. Highlights include:

  • Windows 2000 Server, Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all .NET servers.
  • Windows 2K Server adds to the core stability of Microsoft's Windows NT OS platform that was first published in 1993, and which powers hundreds of millions of applications globally.
  • Greatly reduced management expense due to the ability to run desktop computers, laptops and servers with the same core OS platform.
  • Management and system protection utilities to reduce the expense and improve the dependability of Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP desktop computers by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from putting programs on their notebook or workstation, or even restricting them from web access for workers that have no business with such tools, can be a huge efficiency gain for both your users and your IT support group.
  • Compared to previous releases of Windows, such as Windows 98, Microsoft's Windows 2K Server is a highly robust environment to host applications.
  • A built-in security and password design that builds upon a uniform directory architecture allows seamless and secure access for local clients, mobile or off-site users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Significantly improved server and desktop administrative utilities that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing support staff resources to improve the service level and responsiveness to users.
  • Extensive hardware and application compatibility thanks to being the “Standard” OS.
  • Excellent accommodation for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and especially for users who are sometimes at the office but require the identical level of efficiency when they are on the road. Functions like offline server folders allow users transparent availability of data even when they are not connected.
  • high uptime features, such as disk mirroring, distributed file system, and cluster configurations, maximize server uptime and user productivity.
