OS X Server 2.0
Source: apple.com – OS X Server 2.0

The OS X Server 2.0 is a server operating system designed, developed, and sold by Apple from 2012 to 2014 alongside OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The system was released on July 25, 2012, and was available in the Mac App Store for $19.99.

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 a web server, wiki server, chat server, calendar server, and many others.

This software got the last update (2.2.5) on October 16, 2014, and later has been replaced by a newer version OS X Server 3.0. Today OS X Server 2.0 is 11 years old!
