The OS X Server 2.0 is a server operating system that was designed, developed, and sold by Apple from 2012 to 2014 alongside OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The system has been released on July 25, 2012, and was available for $19.99 from Mac App Store. This software gets the last update (2.2.5) on October 16, 2014, and later has been replaced by a newer version OS X Server 3.0.
OS X Server 2.0 is a Unix server operating system architecturally identical to its desktop counterpart Mac OS X – with additional server programs and management and administration tools. As of version 10.8 Mountain Lion, Mac OS X, and Mac OS X Server were combined into one release and re-branded as OS X.
A separate “server” operating system is no longer sold; the server-specific server applications and workgroup management and administration software tools from Mac OS X Server are now offered as Server App, an add-on package for OS X sold through the Mac App Store along with Server Admin Tools, available from the Apple support website.
These tools simplify access to key network services, including a mail transfer agent, AFP and SMB servers, an LDAP server, a domain name server, and others. Also included (particularly in later versions) are numerous additional services and the tools to manage them, such as web server, wiki server, chat server, calendar server, and many others.
Today OS X Server 2.0 is 9 years old!
