Overview of Microsoft's Windows Server 2000
Windows 2K Server is founded on the strong design of Microsoft Windows NT technology, integrating standards-based directory, application, communications, file, and printing services with high stability, easy manageability, and compatibility with the cost-effective network hardware to provide dependable basis for integrating your business with the Internet.

Advantages of Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server Unavailable on Microsoft's Windows NT
Microsoft's Windows 2000 Server provides a wide array of proven functions not available on Microsoft's Windows NT servers. These include:

  • Windows 2K Server, Microsoft's Windows Advanced Server, and Windows Datacenter Server are the basis for all .NET application servers.
  • Windows Server 2000 builds upon the fundamental dependability of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system that was initially released in 1993, and is used in millions of applications worldwide.
  • Greatly reduced support expense due to the ability to run desktop computers, laptops and servers with the identical core OS platform.
  • Management and security tools to lower the cost and improve the reliability of Microsoft Windows 2K and Windows XP desktop workstations by using centralized user policies, rights and configurations. Restraining unauthorized users from putting programs on their laptop or desktop PC, or even prohibiting them from web access for workers that have no need for such tools, can be a huge efficiency gain for both your clients and your IT support group.
  • Compared to prior generations of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 98 or Windows NT, Windows Server 2000 is a highly robust environment to host applications.
  • A built-in protection and password model that builds upon a uniform directory architecture allows seamless and secure access for local users, mobile or remote users, telecommuters, and web users.
  • Greatly enhanced server and desktop administrative utilities that reduce the hassle of maintaining servers and workstations, freeing IT personnel to enhance the service quality and attentiveness to clients.
  • Extensive hardware and application compatibility as a result of being the most widely used OS.
  • Excellent accommodation for off-site access users, telecommuters, and virtual users, and particularly for users who are often at the office but need the identical level of productivity when they are mobile. Features such as offline server folders allow clients transparent availability of information even when they are working offline.
  • service continuity functionality, including disk mirroring, distributed file system, and cluster configurations, maximize server uptime and worker productivity.
