Windows Datacenter Server

Since 1995, ENTmag.com has focused on enterprise Windows by providing independent news coverage and analysis of Microsoft's efforts to make Windows NT and later Windows 2000 into an enterprise-class operating environment.
For the most part "enterprise Windows" means enterprise network client deployments, file and print servers, e-mail and interoperability with Novell, Unix and mainframe systems. But in late 1998, Microsoft disclosed its intent to deliver a high-end version of the operating system called Windows Datacenter Server that was aimed at the glasshouse -- the domain of Unix and the mainframe.
Because the Datacenter operating system dovetails so nicely with ENT's editorial mission -- that Windows, with all its flaws, had an important and ever-growing role to play in the enterprise -- we have watched this operating system's development closely. What follows is ENT's assessment of Windows Datacenter Server in the two years since its Sept. 26, 2000 launch.
