The Windows 2000 Server Family

Business Operating Systems for the Next Generation of Computing

As your business increasingly uses the Internet, you can consider new ways to bring your products and services to market. You can also extend your networks to partners and customers. To take advantage of these opportunities, however, you need an infrastructure that can readily respond to market forces, while delivering high reliability, security, and scalability. The infrastructure also needs to offer efficient management, ease of use, and support for the latest advances in networking and server hardware. And, ideally, you can create this infrastructure by building on your existing skills and systems.

The Windows 2000 Server Family is designed to meet these needs for businesses of all sizes, from small, centralized organizations to the largest distributed enterprise. Building on the strengths of Windows NT Server 4.0, the Windows 2000 Server Family delivers three increasingly powerful products that set a new standard for reliability and scalability. The Windows 2000 Server Family also demonstrates how well an operating system can be integrated with a standards-based directory, Web, application, network, file and print services, and end-to-end management. This combination of reliability and functionality provides the best foundation for integrating your business with the Internet.
