MS Windows Server 2003
Microsoft's Windows Server 2003 platform offers a robust, enterprise-ready computing environment that delivers important improvements over its predecessor, Windows 2000. These powerful features strengthen the core of reliability, extensibility and protection offered by Windows Server 2000, making Microsoft Windows 2003 faster, more reliable, and more protected than previous releases of Microsoft Windows server operating system.

The Microsoft Windows Server 2003 family comprises four editions:

  • Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, is a dependable server operating system for the common needs of businesses of any size, providing an efficient solution for file and printer sharing, protected Internet connectivity, centralized PC application deployment, and a rich integrated network among employees, partners, and customers.
  • Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, is the platform of choice for large enterprises and for small and mid-size companies to develop, deliver, and protect robust applications, web-based services, and network architecture.
  • Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition, is best suited for mission-critical applications that require high levels of scalability and fault tolerance.
  • Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, is intended for serving web pages, while retaining the basic features that provide enhanced dependability, manageability, and security.
Benefits of Microsoft Windows Server 2003
MS Windows Server 2003 provides a multitude of productive features and enhanced functionality over Windows Server 2000. Improvements include:
  • Active Directory performance and flexibility is faster and more robust over unreliable WAN connections thanks to faster synchronization and replication as well as caching of credentials in remote office domain controllers.
  • Enhancements to the Distributed File System and Encrypting File System enable highly functional, flexible file access and storage.
  • Advanced Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) providers and command-line utilities for server tasks give administrators great fine-grain control.
  • To make file storage and archiving simpler, Windows Server 2003 includes the Volume Shadow Copy Service, which provides point-in-time copies of networked shares. Users can easily access previous versions of their files through the Windows Explorer utility by simply right-clicking on a name or icon.
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is optimized for supporting XML-based Web services thanks to native compatibility with .NET and EXtensible Markup Language with the incorporation of the .NET Framework.
  • Significant networking improvements in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 include Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) over Network Address Translation (NAT).
  • Common Language Runtime safeguards systems from malicious or poorly written software.
  • Credential Management offers a safe depository of client credentials, such as passwords and public key infrastructure (X.509) certificates. This provides a common sign-on protocol for users, even roaming users.
  • The Encrypting File System (EFS) is the technique utilized to hold encrypted files on NTFS volumes. Encrypted files and folders are easy to use as they appear exactly the same as any other file: transparent to authorized users but inaccessible to others. EFS is particularly advantageous for mobile users who may work under a greater danger of PC theft.
  • Advanced support for virtual private network technologies, including a remote access server that provides both dial-up and VPN links, providing flexibility and security for remote access.
  • 802.1x wireless network support provides protection and speed improvements for wireless local area networks. Among these are automatic key management and user authentication/authorization prior to network access. Fast recovery virtually does away with 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. Support for management controllers and management ports enables servers to be managed even if a system has died.
  • Auto-configuration for multiple networks provides the mobile computer user seamless functionality on both office and remote environments without being required to manually redo TCP/IP settings.
  • Voice over IP enhances Remote Assistance by enabling a voice session when the Remote Help Connection is initiated.
