MS Windows Server 2003
Microsoft's Windows Server 2003 platform provides a robust, enterprise-ready computing platform that brings important enhancements over its predecessor, Microsoft Windows 2000 Server. These powerful features build on the foundation of availability, extensibility and protection introduced in Microsoft Windows Server 2000, making Windows 2003 Server faster, more dependable, and more protected than earlier releases of Windows server platform.

The Windows Server 2003 product line is available in four editions:

  • Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, is a dependable server operating system for the typical needs of companies of all sizes, offering an efficient solution for data and peripheral sharing, secure Internet connectivity, centralized desktop application management, and a powerful integrated environment for employees, partners, and clients.
  • Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, is the platform best suited for big enterprises and for small and medium-size companies to develop, deliver, and secure reliable applications, Web services, and network architecture.
  • Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition, is best suited for mission-critical applications that demand high levels of scalability and availability.
  • Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, is optimized for serving web pages, while retaining the core features that provide advanced reliability, manageability, and protection.
Features of Windows Server 2003
MS Windows Server 2003 offers a wealth of powerful features and improved functionality over Windows Server 2000. Highlights include:
  • Active Directory performance and versatility is quicker and more dependable over marginal WAN connections because of faster synchronization and replication plus storing of credentials in branch office domain controllers.
  • Enhancements to the Distributed File System and Encrypting File System enable highly functional, versatile file access and storage.
  • Enhanced Windows Management Instrumentation providers and command-line tools for system jobs offers administrators great granular control.
  • To make storage and backup simpler, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 includes the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which offers time-specific backups of networked shares. Users can easily recover older versions of their files through the familiar Windows Explorer utility by simply right-clicking on a file or folder.
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is ideal for supporting XML-based Web services thanks to built-in compatibility with Microsoft .NET and XML with the inclusion of the .NET Framework.
  • Important networking enhancements in Windows Server 2003 include Internet Protocol version 6, Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPoE), and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) over Network Address Translation (NAT).
  • Common Language Runtime (CLR) protects networks from ill-intended or badly designed code.
  • Credential Management provides a secure depository of user credentials, including passwords and public key infrastructure (X.509) certificates. This provides a common sign-on protocol for users, including roaming users.
  • The Encrypting File System is the technique utilized to store encrypted files on NTFS volumes. Encrypted files and folders are easy to use as they appear exactly like any other file or folder: transparent to legitimate users but unavailable to anyone else. The Encrypting File System (EFS) is particularly advantageous for traveling users who usually work under a higher danger of computer theft.
  • Enhanced compatibility with virtual private network (VPN) technologies, such as a remote access server that provides both dial-up and VPN links, providing versatility and protection for remote connectivity.
  • 802.1x wireless support offers security and speed enhancements for wireless LANs. These include automatic key management and user authentication and authorization prior to network access. Prompt recovery virtually eliminates packet corruption and interruption over slow 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 ports allows servers to be controlled even when a computer has died.
  • Auto-configuration for a variety of networks provides the mobile computer client seamless operations on both office and remote environments without having to manually reconfigure TCP/IP settings.
  • Voice over IP (VoIP) enhances Remote Assistance by enabling a voice session when the Remote Help Connection is initiated.
