Overview of Windows Server 2000
Windows Server 2000 builds on the strong design of Windows NT technology, combining standards-based directory, application, communications, file, and print services with high reliability, easy manageability, and support for the cost-effective network appliances to offer dependable foundation for interfacing your corporate information system with the Internet.

Advantages of Windows 2000 Server Not on Microsoft's Windows NT
Windows 2K Server provides a wide range of proven features unavailable on Windows NT systems. Highlights include:

  • Windows Server 2000, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all .NET application servers.
  • Windows 2000 Server adds to the fundamental dependability of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system that was first released in 1993, and is used in millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly reduced management costs due to the ability to run PCs, laptops and servers with the identical core operating system.
  • Administration and system protection tools to lower the cost and enhance the reliability of Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop computers by using centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from installing programs on their notebook or desktop PC, or even restricting them from web connectivity for users that have no business with such tools, can be a huge efficiency gain for both your users and your IT support staff.
  • Compared to prior releases of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98, Microsoft's Windows 2K Server is a very stable environment to host applications.
  • An integrated protection and password design that is founded on a cohesive directory architecture provides transparent and safe connectivity for local clients, mobile or off-site users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Significantly enhanced server and workstation administrative tools that reduce the hassle of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing IT personnel to enhance the service quality and attentiveness to users.
  • Broad hardware and application compatibility as a result of being the “Standard” OS.
  • High quality accommodation for remote access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and particularly for users that are often at the office but require the same level of productivity when they are on the road. Functions like offline server folders give clients transparent access to data even when they are not connected.
  • high availability features, including disk mirroring, distributed file system, and server clustering, increase server uptime and user productivity.
