Overview of Windows 2000 Server
Windows 2000 Server builds on the strong design of Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, communications, file, and printing services with high stability, efficient management, and support for the cost-effective networking hardware to offer dependable basis for interfacing your corporate information system with the Internet.

Features of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 Unavailable on Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server offers a wide range of proven features not available on Windows NT servers. Highlights include:

  • Microsoft's Windows 2K Server, Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all Microsoft's .NET servers.
  • Windows Server 2000 builds upon the core dependability of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system that was initially published in 1993, and is used in hundreds of millions of applications worldwide.
  • Significantly reduced support costs due to the ability to run PCs, laptops and servers with the same underlying operating system.
  • Management and system protection utilities to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop workstations by using centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from putting software on their laptop or desktop PC, or even restricting them from Internet access for users that have no need for such tools, can be a huge productivity gain for both your clients and your IT support group.
  • In comparison with previous generations of Windows, such as Windows 98, Microsoft's Windows 2K Server is a highly stable environment to host line-of-business programs.
  • An integrated security and password design that builds upon a uniform directory structure allows transparent and secure access for local clients, mobile or off-site users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Significantly improved server and workstation administrative utilities that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and workstations, freeing support staff personnel to enhance the service level and responsiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and application compatibility thanks to being the “Standard” operating system.
  • High quality support for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual clients, and particularly for users who are sometimes working at the office but require the same level of productivity when they are on the road. Functions such as offline server folders allow users seamless availability of data even when they are not connected.
  • high availability features, such as disk mirroring, distributed file system, and server clustering, increase server uptime and worker efficiency.
