Want to build an enterprise network? which can accomodate multiple user? n offcourse we can’t forget the security factor.

I have some hints to build a network like that using windows server 2003 with several software installed to perform much reliable, secure network.

First i’ll explain about the feature of windows server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Family have 3 version, Standar Edition, Enterprise Edition and Data Senter Edition. each version have same ability but have a few different on hardware support.for small use the standar edition may be the best choice, but if you have large type or enterprise server you can use the enterprise or Data center edition to support much more cpu, RAM and storage.

The Next, the main feature use often @ a network with multiple user :

  • Active Directory
  • DNS (Domain Name System)
  • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
  • File Sharing
  • Terminal Server
  • Windows Service Update Server

With 3rd party software from Symantec we can deliver an integrated anti-virus management system @ the network, @this hints i will use Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition for easier update n install.
