The Windows operating system is a type of operating system based on a graphical user interface (GUI). The Windows operating system was developed by Microsoft Corporation, a US company founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Windows is one of the most popular computer operating systems in the world.
Advantages of the Windows operating system
The main reason for the worldwide popularity of Windows is its very user-friendly interface. The Windows operating system offers hardware compatibility, multifunctional features, virtual memory management and many other advantages.
Friendly interface and ease of use
The user interface that Windows OS creates on the computer screen is quite user-friendly compared to other operating systems such as Linux and MAC. In addition, all versions of the Windows operating system, such as Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 and Windows 11, share several common features that make it easy for users to switch from one version to another.
Windows operating systems are graphical user interface (GUI) based operating systems, so anyone with a basic knowledge of computer systems can use a computer without difficulty.
Compatible with all hardware
Windows is used by more than 95% of all operating system users worldwide, making it the most widely used computer operating system. Consequently, all computer hardware manufacturers produce drivers for Windows.
Support for Plug and Play
The Windows operating system comes with most hardware drivers pre-installed, so it offers Plug and Play. This means that a computer system running Windows can automatically detect the plug-in hardware, without the need to manually install the device driver.
Provide software development support
For software developers, the Windows operating system environment is the most convenient. This is because Linux users cannot create applications that could be used on a Windows operating system. Therefore, it is a better choice to use the Windows operating system to develop applications. This is why programmers and software engineers use the Windows operating system to develop games, utilities and other applications.
Advantages of Windows Server
Businesses of all sizes have been using Windows Server as their mission-critical platform for over 30 years. With Windows Server’s powerful features, businesses can enjoy many benefits and flexibility, including.
More flexibility to run Windows Server
With Microsoft’s Flexible Virtualization Benefit upgrade, enterprises can realize ROI by moving SQL Server and Windows Server 2022 workloads from on-premises infrastructure to other cloud providers’ infrastructure. The Software Assurance offering also enables the use of licensing individual virtual machines (VMs) on-premises.
Windows Server includes powerful Windows Defender antivirus and firewall, providing layered protection against malicious activity and network attacks.
It also has an automatic patching feature to keep your system up to date with the latest security updates from Microsoft. Windows Server also has a server core option for those who deploy the Datacenter or Standard version. The Server Core version has a smaller code base, reducing the attack surface.
Windows Server has multiple processor platforms
Windows Server has multiple CPUs, allowing website owners to host multiple sites simultaneously. For example, you can use Apache to host a website and access it through a PHP or DNS server. This flexibility allows businesses to run multiple independent websites on the same server, saving costs and improving performance.
Does not require too much maintenance
Windows servers do not require much maintenance. This allows IT administrators to focus on managing other tasks instead of fixing server problems, making it the perfect solution for any business looking to reduce the maintenance requirements of their corporate environment.
Windows Server has a huge advantage in terms of scalability. This feature allows businesses to easily adjust the use of system resources and tailor them to their needs. Whether businesses have sudden spikes in client traffic or need the ability to add or reduce memory and other resources, Windows Server can adapt easily. It even goes beyond mere resource adjustments to scale to any application architecture that fits the size and complexity of the organization.
Windows Server Access Control makes it easy to set user-level access restrictions and permissions in the system environment. It allows administrators to set permissions based on user activities, user groups, job requirements, etc.
It also reduces inconsistencies between software versions and features by requiring all applications to comply with certain access control standards adopted by Windows Server Operating Systems. This provides additional security for any business environment and helps protect sensitive data from unauthorised persons or hackers trying to gain access to it.
Security updates automatically keep users informed of the latest threats and vulnerabilities in the system. These updates ensure that all known threats are fixed and can help prevent malware from entering the system. Security updates also help to improve performance and configure system options more effectively.
