BackOffice Server 2000 Now Available

Microsoft Corp. today announced the retail availability of BackOffice Server 2000, a suite of tools designed to make maintaining the IT backbone much easier for medium-sized businesses and branch offices that are deploying Windows 2000.

BackOffice 2000 includes the latest version of standard editions of Windows 2000 Server, Exchange 2000 Server, SQL Server 2000, ISA Server 2000, Systems Management Server 2.0, and Microsoft Host Integration Server 2000.

One of the newest features in BackOffice Server 2000 is a MultiServer deployment option. This option enables companies to install only the BackOffice components they find necessary. As their business needs change, they have the ability to add additional software components and remove the components that are no longer needed.

Other new features include turnkey setup of Windows 2000 Server, the Active Directory service, and Exchange 2000 Server; an Internet Connection Wizard that provides a simple method for configuring firewalls and setting productivity permissions; and a Windows Terminal Server administration that manages the suite remotely via a Web client or direct-dial remote access services connection.

The estimated retail price of BackOffice Server 2000 with five client access licenses is $3,999. – Jim Martin
