Introduction to Microsoft's Windows Server 2000
Microsoft's Windows 2K Server builds on the strong design of Microsoft Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, communications, file, and printing services with high reliability, efficient management, and support for the cost-effective networking hardware to offer a stable basis for interfacing your business with the Internet.

Features of Windows Server 2000 Unavailable on Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 provides a broad range of proven functions not available on Microsoft's Windows NT systems. These include:

  • Windows 2000 Server, Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all .NET servers.
  • Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 adds to the core stability of the Windows NT operating system that was first published in 1993, and is used in millions of applications globally.
  • Significantly lowered support expense due to the ability to power desktop computers, laptops and servers with the same core OS platform.
  • Administration and system protection utilities to lower the cost and improve the reliability of Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP desktop computers by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Keeping unauthorized users from putting programs on their laptop or desktop PC, or even prohibiting them from Internet access for users that have no business with such tools, can be a huge productivity gain for both your clients and your IT services staff.
  • In comparison with prior generations of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98, Windows Server 2000 is a very stable platform to host line-of-business programs.
  • An integrated security and password design that builds upon a uniform directory architecture allows transparent and safe connectivity for local clients, mobile or remote users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Significantly improved server and workstation management tools that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing IT personnel to improve the service quality and responsiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and software compatibility thanks to being the “Standard” OS.
  • Excellent accommodation for remote access users, telecommuters, and virtual clients, and particularly for users that are sometimes at the office but require the same degree of productivity when they are on the road. Functions such as offline server folders allow clients seamless access to data even when they are not connected.
  • high uptime features, including disk mirroring, distributed files, and server clustering, increase server availability and worker productivity.
