Windows Server Course And Certification

What is Windows Server?

Windows Server is the brand name for a group of server operating systems that were released and managed by Microsoft. Microsoft Server is made up of all the Windows operating systems that are branded as Windows Server, but not any other Microsoft product. The first edition of the Windows Server to be released under that brand was known as the Windows Server 2003. However, the first Server edition of Windows was known as Windows NT 3.1 Advanced Server, that edition was followed by the Windows NT 3.5 Server, Windows NT 4.0 Server, and Windows 2000 Server; the windows 2000 server was the first server edition to come with Active Directory, DHCP Server, DNS Server, SQL Server, Group Policy, as well as many other popular features that are used today.

By transferring the management and upkeep of the Windows Server to a cloud computing service such as the Microsoft Azure or the Amazon Web Services, users would get the advantage of paying monthly judging on their exact monthly usage rather than a large estimated cost. Besides, infrastructure would need to be more reliable and it is easier to scale up the server as necessary. However, buying and running a server in-house might be a better choice in certain cases when it is more cost-effective. Extra use cases such as making use of a Windows Server to manage the client computers in a facility are also very appropriate for running a physical server.

Certain Windows Server editions have a personalized and customized name. For example, all the editions of the Windows Server to this date have an edition of the Windows Storage Server. Starting from the Windows Server 2012 edition, the Windows Storage Server was ended, as Microsoft incorporated the editions to Standard and Datacenter.

Microsoft has also designed the Windows Server Essentials formerly known as Windows Small Business Server and the terminated Windows Essential Business Server, software bundles that come with a somewhat limited Windows Server operating system and some other products of Microsoft Server products.
