MS Windows Server 2003
The Windows Server 2003 operating system provides a robust, enterprise-ready computing environment that delivers important enhancements over its predecessor, Microsoft Windows Server 2000. These powerful features build on the core of availability, expandability and security introduced in Windows 2000, making Microsoft Windows 2003 more efficient, more dependable, and more protected than previous versions of Microsoft Windows server operating system.

The Microsoft Windows Server 2003 product line comprises four editions:

  • Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, is a reliable server operating system for the common requirements of businesses of all sizes, offering an effective solution for file and printer sharing, secure Internet access, centralized desktop software management, and a powerful connected environment among employees, associates, and customers.
  • Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, is the platform best suited for large enterprises and for small and mid-size businesses to create, deploy, and secure robust applications, web-based services, and infrastructure.
  • Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition, is best suited for business-critical applications that demand high levels of scalability and fault tolerance.
  • Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, is designed for hosting web pages, while maintaining the basic functions that support enhanced dependability, manageability, and protection.
Benefits of Microsoft Windows Server 2003
MS Windows Server 2003 offers a multitude of powerful features and enhanced functionality over Windows 2000 Server. Highlights include:
  • Active Directory performance and flexibility is quicker and more dependable over marginal WAN links because of more efficient synchronization and replication plus storing of credentials in remote office domain controllers.
  • Improvements to the Distributed File System and Encrypting File System (EFS) enable highly functional, flexible file sharing and storage.
  • Advanced Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) providers and command-line utilities for system jobs give IT managers exceptional fine-grain control.
  • To make file storage and backup simpler, MS Windows Server 2003 incorporates the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which provides time-specific backups of networked shares. Clients can easily access previous versions of their work through the familiar 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 built-in support of Microsoft .NET and EXtensible Markup Language with the inclusion of the .NET Framework.
  • Significant networking improvements in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 include Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPoE), and Internet Protocol Security over Network Address Translation.
  • Common Language Runtime safeguards networks from ill-intended or badly written code.
  • Credential Management provides a safe store of client credentials, such as passwords and X.509 certificates. This allows a common sign-on protocol for users, even roaming users.
  • The Encrypting File System is the technology used to store encrypted files on NTFS volumes. Encrypted files and folders are simple to work with as they appear just like any other file: transparent to authorized users but inaccessible to others. EFS is especially advantageous for mobile clients who may face a greater danger of PC theft.
  • Enhanced support for virtual private network environments, such as a remote access server that supports both dial-up and virtual private network connections, providing flexibility and protection for remote connectivity.
  • 802.1x wireless support offers security and performance enhancements for wireless LANs. These include programmed key management and user authentication in advance of LAN access. Prompt recovery practically eliminates packet corruption and interruption over high-latency wireless network connections.
  • Headless server allows the ability to integrate and manage a computer without a monitor, VGA adaptor, keyboard, or mouse. Compatibility with management controllers and management ports allows servers to be controlled even if a computer has died.
  • Auto-configuration for a variety of networks offers the mobile PC user seamless operations on both office and remote environments without having to manually redo TCP/IP configurations.
  • Voice over IP enhances Remote Assistance by supporting a voice session when the Remote Help Connection is established.
