Introduction to Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 is founded on the strong design of Windows NT technology, combining popular directory, application, networking, file, and print services with proven stability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the cost-effective network hardware to offer a stable basis for integrating your corporate information system with the Internet.

Features of Windows 2K Server Unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows Server 2000 provides a broad array of powerful features not available on Windows NT systems. These include:

  • Windows Server 2000, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the foundation for all .NET application servers.
  • Windows 2000 Server builds upon the fundamental dependability of Microsoft's Windows NT OS platform that was initially released in 1993, and is used in millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly lowered management costs as a result of the ability to power PCs, laptops and servers with the same underlying operating system.
  • Administration and system protection tools to lower the cost and enhance the reliability of Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop workstations by utilizing centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from putting programs on their notebook or workstation, or even prohibiting them from Internet access 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 generations of Windows, such as Windows NT, Windows Server 2000 is a very stable environment for hosting line-of-business programs.
  • An integrated security and password model that is founded on a uniform directory structure provides transparent and safe connectivity for onsite clients, mobile or off-site users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Greatly improved server and workstation administrative utilities that reduce the burden of maintaining servers and desktops, allowing support staff resources to enhance the service quality and attentiveness to clients.
  • Broad hardware and application compatibility as a result of being the most widely used operating system.
  • Excellent support for off-site access users, at-home workers, and virtual users, and especially for users who are sometimes working at the office but need the same degree of productivity when they are mobile. Functions like offline server folders allow clients seamless availability of information even when they are working offline.
  • fault tolerance features, such as disk mirroring, distributed files, and cluster configurations, increase server availability and user efficiency.
