Introduction to Windows 2K Server
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 builds on the strong design of Microsoft Windows NT technology, integrating standards-based directory, application, communications, file, and printing services with high stability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the cost-effective networking hardware to offer a stable foundation for integrating your corporate information system with the Internet.

Features of Windows 2000 Server Unavailable on Windows NT
Windows Server 2000 offers a broad array of powerful features not available on Windows NT servers. Highlights include:

  • Microsoft's Windows 2K Server, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Microsoft's Windows Datacenter Server are the basis for all .NET application servers.
  • Windows Server 2000 adds to the core stability of the Windows NT operating system that was first published in 1993, and which powers millions of applications worldwide.
  • Significantly reduced support costs as a result of the ability to run desktop computers, notebooks and servers with the identical underlying OS platform.
  • Administration and system protection utilities to lower the expense and enhance the reliability of Windows 2000 and Windows XP desktop computers by using centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Keeping unauthorized users from putting programs on their laptop or workstation, or even restricting them from web connectivity for users that have no business with such tools, can be a huge productivity gain for both your users and your network services staff.
  • Compared to previous generations of Windows, such as Windows NT, Windows Server 2000 is a highly robust platform to host applications.
  • An integrated protection and password model that builds upon a cohesive directory architecture allows transparent and secure access for onsite clients, mobile or remote users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Greatly improved server and workstation administrative tools that reduce the hassle of maintaining servers and desktops, allowing IT personnel to improve the service level and responsiveness to users.
  • Broad hardware and application compatibility thanks to being the most widely used OS.
  • Excellent accommodation for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and especially for users who are often at the office but need the identical degree of efficiency when they are mobile. Features such as offline server folders allow clients transparent access to information even when they are working offline.
  • service continuity features, such as disk mirroring, distributed file system, and cluster configurations, increase server availability and worker productivity.
