SSDS Announces Availability of Windows 2000 Lab for Clients.

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 11, 1999--

SSDS has announced the availability of a Windows 2000 lab for clients who would like to see "the forest through the trees."

As a member of the Windows 2000 Rapid Deployment Program (RDP), SSDS is working with Microsoft to architect solutions that let companies quickly and inexpensively adopt Windows 2000 without having to "rip and replace" previous technology investments.

SSDS is a Partner-level Microsoft Certified Solution Provider with extensive experience in early adopter programs. Prior to selection to the Windows 2000 RDP, SSDS participated in the Microsoft Exchange Server First Looks, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 early adopter programs.

SSDS has established a test bed lab in its Fairfax facility to demonstrate Windows 2000 solutions. Using a wide range of industry hardware, the lab provides a platform to emulate our clients' physical and logical network topologies. The lab's multi-segmented LAN and WAN networks allow emulation of most network traffic situations. Additionally, the physical distribution of cabling and connectivity allows rapid reconfiguration of a network solution.

Our clients can also use the Windows 2000 model to prototype the following Windows 2000 components:

o Active Directory

o Dynamic Domain Name System (DNS)

o Network Infrastructure Services (DHCP, WINS, RRAS, RIS, QoS)

o Security (Kerberos, PKI, Certificates, IPSec)

o Policy Management (User and Computer Policies)

o Administration tools (Microsoft Management Console)

o BackOffice applications (Microsoft Exchange Server and E-mail


o Independent Validation and Verification Testing

Mike Batt, business development representative from the Microsoft Federal District, said after a recent tour, "SSDS has put together a great Win2000 lab that will help our customers achieve the greatest results in planning for a successful migration from NT4.0 or other network operating systems. I'd encourage IT organizations to work with SSDS and take advantage of the lab."

With the expertise SSDS has gained as a member of the Windows 2000 Rapid Deployment Program, our clients can expect a knowledge transfer that provides a clear view of the forest through the trees. Together we can architect, prototype, and build Windows 2000 solutions.
