Windows Server 2003
The Windows Server 2003 operating system offers a reliable, enterprise-class computing environment that brings significant enhancements over its predecessor, Microsoft Windows 2000 Server. These added features strengthen the foundation of availability, extensibility and security introduced in Microsoft Windows 2K Server, making Microsoft Windows 2003 faster, more reliable, and more protected than previous versions of Microsoft Windows server platform.

The Microsoft Windows Server 2003 product line comprises four versions:

  • Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, is a reliable server platform for the everyday needs of businesses of all sizes, offering an efficient answer for file and printer sharing, protected Internet connectivity, centralized desktop application management, and a powerful integrated network among workers, associates, and customers.
  • Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, is the platform best suited for large enterprises and for small and mid-size businesses to develop, deliver, and protect reliable applications, Web commerce, and network architecture.
  • Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition, is best suited for business-critical applications that demand high levels of expandability and availability.
  • Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, is optimized for hosting web pages, while retaining the basic functions that provide enhanced dependability, manageability, and protection.
Benefits of Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 provides a wealth of productive features and enhanced functionality over Windows Server 2000. Highlights include:
  • Active Directory performance and versatility is faster and more dependable over marginal WAN connections thanks to more efficient synchronization and replication as well as storing of credentials in remote office domain controllers.
  • Enhancements to the Distributed File System (DFS) and Encrypting File System (EFS) allow for highly functional, flexible file access and storage.
  • Enhanced Windows Management Instrumentation providers and command-line tools for server tasks give IT managers great fine-grain control.
  • To make storage and backup simpler, MS Windows Server 2003 includes the Volume Shadow Copy Service, which offers point-in-time backups of networked shares. Users can easily recover older versions of their work through the Windows Explorer utility by simply right-clicking on a name or icon.
  • Windows Server 2003 is optimized for hosting XML-based Web services thanks to built-in support of .NET and EXtensible Markup Language with the incorporation of the .NET Framework.
  • Significant networking enhancements 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 (CLR) protects networks from ill-intended or poorly written code.
  • Credential Management provides a safe depository of client credentials, such as passwords and X.509 certificates. This allows a single sign-on protocol for users, even roaming ones.
  • The Encrypting File System (EFS) is the technique used to store encrypted files on NTFS volumes. Encrypted files are easy to work with because they look exactly the same as any other file or folder: transparent to legitimate users but unavailable to anyone else. EFS is particularly advantageous for traveling clients who may face a greater danger of computer theft.
  • Enhanced compatibility with virtual private network (VPN) technologies, including a remote access server that supports both dial-up and VPN links, offering flexibility and protection for remote connectivity.
  • 802.1x wireless network support provides protection and performance enhancements for wireless local area networks (LANs). These include programmed key management and user authentication prior to LAN access. Prompt recovery virtually eliminates packet corruption and interruption over high-latency wireless network connections.
  • Headless server provides the ability to integrate and administer a computer without a monitor, VGA adaptor, keyboard, or mouse. Compatibility with management controllers and ports enables servers to be controlled even if a system has crashed.
  • Auto-configuration for multiple networks provides the mobile computer user seamless functionality on both office and home environments without having to manually redo TCP/IP configurations.
  • VoIP enhances Remote Assistance by enabling a voice session at the time the Remote Help Connection is established.
