This white paper is not intended to be a complete design or implementation guide; it is intended to be a general guide based on the best practices that were collected through project experience. For this reason, this white paper does not provide a rigorous discussion of all the issues that may affect a Microsoft Windows 2000 or an Exchange 2000 design and implementation. It is intended to familiarize you with only the basic architectural components of Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 and the particulars of the design that is implemented at a fictitious company, Woodgrove Bank.
Woodgrove Bank has a vision to provide its user community with the best tools in a reliable, manageable, and secure environment. This vision provides Woodgrove Bank with a competitive advantage both internally and externally. Implementation of Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 fits this vision by providing Woodgrove Bank with the most powerful tools available today for an environment that can be centrally managed and controlled. After Woodgrove Banks completes this project, it will have a world-class operating environment that addresses many of its current needs and allows future scalability as Woodgrove Bank progresses.
