Microsoft Windows Server 2003
The Windows Server 2003 operating system provides a reliable, enterprise-class computing environment that delivers significant improvements over its predecessor, Windows 2000. These added features build on the foundation of reliability, scalability and security offered by Windows 2000 Server, making Windows 2003 Server faster, more reliable, and more protected than earlier versions of Windows server platform.

The MS Windows Server 2003 family is available in four editions:

  • Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, is a dependable server OS for the everyday requirements of businesses of any size, providing an effective answer for data and peripheral sharing, protected Internet connectivity, centralized desktop application deployment, and a powerful connected network among employees, associates, and clients.
  • Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, is the operating system best suited for large organizations and for small and medium-size businesses to develop, deploy, and secure reliable applications, web-based commerce, and network architecture.
  • Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition, is best suited for business-critical applications that demand high levels of scalability and availability.
  • Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, is intended for hosting web sites, while maintaining the basic functions that provide enhanced dependability, manageability, and protection.
Features of Microsoft Windows Server 2003
MS Windows Server 2003 provides a wealth of productive features and enhanced functionality over Windows Server 2K. Highlights include:
  • Active Directory performance and versatility is quicker and more dependable over marginal WAN connections thanks to faster synchronization and replication plus caching of credentials in remote office domain controllers.
  • Improvements to the Distributed File System and Encrypting File System (EFS) enable powerful, flexible file access and storage.
  • Advanced Windows Management Instrumentation providers and command-line tools for system jobs give administrators great granular control.
  • To make storage and archiving simpler, Windows Server 2003 incorporates the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which offers time-specific copies of networked shares. Users can easily access previous versions of their work through the Windows Explorer by simply right-clicking on a name or icon.
  • MS Windows Server 2003 is optimized for hosting XML-based Web services thanks to integrated support of Microsoft .NET and XML with the incorporation of the .NET Framework.
  • Significant networking improvements in MS Windows Server 2003 include Internet Protocol version 6, Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPoE), and Internet Protocol Security over Network Address Translation.
  • Common Language Runtime protects networks from ill-intended or badly written software.
  • Credential Management provides a safe store of user credentials, such as passwords and X.509 certificates. This provides a single sign-on experience for users, including roaming ones.
  • The Encrypting File System (EFS) is the technique used to store encrypted files on NTFS volumes. Encrypted files and folders are easy to work with as they appear exactly the same as any other file: transparent to legitimate users but unavailable to anyone else. The Encrypting File System (EFS) is especially beneficial for traveling clients who may face a higher risk of PC loss or theft.
  • Advanced support for VPN technologies, including a remote access server that supports both dial-up and virtual private network connections, offering versatility and security for remote connectivity.
  • 802.1x wireless support offers protection and performance improvements for wireless LANs. Among these are programmed key management and user authentication prior to LAN access. Prompt recovery virtually does away with packet corruption and interruption over slow wireless links.
  • Headless server allows the capability to integrate and manage a computer without a monitor, VGA adaptor, keyboard, or mouse. Support for management controllers and ports allows servers to be managed even if a system has crashed.
  • Auto-configuration for a variety of networks offers the mobile computer client transparent operations on both office and home networks without being required to manually redo TCP/IP settings.
  • Voice over IP (VoIP) improves Remote Assistance by enabling a voice session when the Remote Help Connection is initiated.
