The Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Server operating system includes integrated Web and application services. These include Internet Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0, and technologies such as COM+, Message Queuing, and data access. This combination allows developers to use a wide variety of programming languages and tools to build applications that can easily integrate with existing systems, while taking advantage of emerging technologies. By integrating these technologies with enhanced performance, scalability, and reliability, as well as infrastructure features including Microsoft Active Directory™ service and end-to-end security, Windows 2000 provides an application server platform well suited for the next generation of Web-enabled applications.
