Introduction to Microsoft's Windows 2K Server
Windows 2K Server builds on the strengths of Windows NT technology, integrating popular directory, application, networking, file, and print services with high reliability, efficient management, and compatibility with the mainstream networking hardware to offer a stable foundation for integrating your corporate information system with the Internet.

Features of Microsoft's Windows 2K Server Unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT
Windows Server 2000 offers a wide range of powerful functions not available on Microsoft's Windows NT systems. These include:

  • Windows Server 2000, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the basis for all .NET servers.
  • Windows Server 2000 adds to the fundamental stability of Microsoft's Windows NT OS platform that was initially published in 1993, and which powers millions of applications globally.
  • Greatly lowered support costs as a result of the ability to run PCs, notebooks and servers with the same underlying OS platform.
  • Management and system protection tools to reduce the cost and improve the dependability of Windows 2000 and Windows XP desktop workstations by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and setups. Restraining unauthorized users from installing software on their notebook or desktop PC, or even prohibiting them from Internet access for users that have no need for such tools, can be a huge efficiency advantage for both your clients and your network support staff.
  • Compared to prior generations of Windows, such as Windows 98, Microsoft's Windows 2K Server is a very robust platform for hosting applications.
  • An integrated protection and password design that is founded on a uniform directory structure allows seamless and safe connectivity for onsite clients, mobile or remote users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Significantly enhanced server and desktop management utilities that reduce the hassle of maintaining servers and desktops, freeing IT resources to enhance the service quality and responsiveness to clients.
  • Broad hardware and application compatibility as a result of being the “Standard” operating system.
  • Excellent accommodation for remote access users, at-home workers, and virtual clients, and particularly for users that are sometimes 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.
  • high uptime features, including disk mirroring, distributed file system, and server clustering, maximize server uptime and worker efficiency.
