Introduction to Windows 2000 Server
Windows 2K Server builds on the strengths of Windows NT technology, integrating standards-based directory, application, communications, file, and print services with high reliability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the mainstream networking hardware to offer dependable basis for interfacing your business with the Internet.

Advantages of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 Not on Windows NT
Windows Server 2000 offers a broad range of powerful features not available on Windows NT systems. Highlights include:

  • Windows 2K Server, Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all Microsoft's .NET servers.
  • Windows Server 2000 builds upon the fundamental stability of the Windows NT OS platform that was first published in 1993, and which powers millions of applications globally.
  • Greatly reduced management costs due to the ability to power desktop computers, laptops and servers with the identical core OS platform.
  • Management and system protection tools to lower the expense and enhance the reliability of Microsoft 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 workstation, or even restricting them from Internet connectivity for users that have no need for such tools, can be a major efficiency advantage for both your clients and your IT services staff.
  • Compared to prior releases of Windows, such as Windows 98 or Windows NT, Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 is a very stable environment for hosting line-of-business programs.
  • An integrated protection and password model that is founded on a uniform directory architecture allows seamless and safe connectivity for onsite users, mobile or remote users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Significantly improved server and workstation administrative utilities that ease the burden of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing IT personnel to enhance the service quality and responsiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and software compatibility as a result of being the most widely used operating system.
  • High quality support for remote access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and particularly for users who are often at the office but need the same level of efficiency when they are on the road. Functions like offline server folders allow users seamless access to data even when they are not connected.
  • service continuity functionality, such as disk mirroring, distributed file system, and cluster configurations, maximize server availability and user productivity.
