Overview of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server is founded on the strong design of Microsoft Windows NT technology, integrating standards-based directory, application, communications, file, and printing services with proven reliability, easy manageability, and support for the cost-effective networking hardware to provide dependable basis for integrating your business with the Internet.

Features of Windows 2K Server Unavailable on Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server offers a wide range of proven features unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT servers. These include:

  • Windows 2000 Server, Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all Microsoft's .NET application servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows 2K Server builds upon the core dependability of the Windows NT OS platform that was first published in 1993, and is used in hundreds of millions of applications globally.
  • Significantly reduced support costs due to the ability to run desktop computers, notebooks and servers with the identical underlying operating system.
  • Administration and system protection tools to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of Windows 2000 and Windows XP desktop workstations by using centralized user policies, rights and setups. Restraining unauthorized users from installing programs on their notebook or desktop PC, or even prohibiting them from Internet connectivity for users that have no need for such tools, can be a huge productivity advantage for both your users and your IT services staff.
  • Compared to prior releases of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows NT, Microsoft's Windows 2K Server is a very stable platform to host line-of-business programs.
  • A built-in protection and password design that is founded on a cohesive directory structure provides transparent and safe connectivity for onsite clients, mobile or remote users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Significantly enhanced server and workstation administrative utilities that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing support staff resources to improve the service quality and attentiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and software compatibility thanks to being the most widely used operating system.
  • High quality accommodation for remote access users, at-home workers, and virtual users, and particularly for users who are sometimes working at the office but need the identical level of efficiency when they are mobile. Functions like offline server folders allow users seamless availability of data even when they are not connected.
  • high availability functionality, including disk mirroring, distributed file system, and cluster configurations, maximize server availability and user productivity.
