Introduction to Microsoft's Windows 2K Server
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server builds on the strong design of Windows NT technology, integrating standards-based directory, application, communications, file, and print services with high reliability, efficient management, and support for the cost-effective networking appliances to provide dependable basis for interfacing your business with the Internet.

Advantages of Windows 2K Server Unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT
Windows 2000 Server provides a wide range of powerful features not available on Microsoft's Windows NT servers. Highlights include:

  • Windows Server 2000, Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all .NET servers.
  • Windows Server 2000 builds upon the fundamental stability of the Windows NT operating system that was first released in 1993, and which powers millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly lowered management costs as a result of the ability to power desktop computers, laptops and servers with the same underlying operating system.
  • Management and system protection utilities to lower the cost and improve the reliability of Microsoft Windows 2K 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 web access for users that have no business with such tools, can be a huge efficiency gain for both your clients and your IT support group.
  • In comparison with prior releases of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98, Windows 2K Server is a very robust environment to host applications.
  • An integrated protection and password model that builds upon a cohesive directory structure allows seamless and secure access for onsite clients, mobile or off-site users, at-home workers, and web users.
  • Greatly enhanced server and desktop management tools that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and workstations, allowing support staff resources to improve the service level and responsiveness to users.
  • Broad hardware and software compatibility as a result of being the most widely used operating system.
  • Excellent accommodation for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and especially for users who are sometimes working at the office but need the same level of efficiency when they are on the road. Features like offline server folders allow users seamless access to data even when they are working offline.
  • high uptime functionality, including disk mirroring, distributed file system, and server clustering, maximize server uptime and worker efficiency.
