Active Directory

Microsoft's Active Directory is the directory service included with Windows 2000 Server. Windows 2000 is the successor to Windows NT Server 4.0. Active Directory extends the feature set found in Windows NT domain services and adds new features. It is a secure directory database that can be partitioned and distributed via replication throughout the network. Active Directory is also scalable, and is designed to work in an environment with thousands of servers and millions of objects.
