What Is the Dynamic Link Manager?

Dynamic Link Manager (DLM) is specialised software that provides a connection between multiple server clusters, switches, management servers and user machines. It is used to maintain a constant flow of data between these machines as well as optimise their storage and flow by creating load balances, failbacks and a performance level that avoids bottlenecks.

Cross-systems Platform

Dynamic Link Manager can work across multiple operating systems to optimise their connection and requires minimal maintenance and attendance. Large businesses that require quick access to large amounts of data normally would have to depend on staff members and labour hours to set up and maintain a regular network flow. Dynamic Link Manager eliminates the need for extensive personnel costs by optimising the way server clusters are organised. Even across large distances or different continents, this software can help keep the servers communicating with each other efficiently.

Easy Management of Data

Dynamic Link Manager has an integrated management tool that allows a single operator to control the entire network with a click of a mouse. The software also comes with monitoring and troubleshooting tools that can help determine if a certain storage area is not operating at full potential or is non-functional. In the event of failure of one of the servers, the failback feature will ensure that the traffic is redirected through the remaining nodes and the administrator is notified of the event. Once the problem is corrected, the system automatically redirects traffic to all working nodes to optimise performance. This failback system leads to much higher server uptimes and ensures that users are always able to access data.

Grouping and Managing Servers

Dynamic Link Manager also creates groups of servers. This is useful if your company or organisation has multiple servers all around the world and you want to organise them. The software allows you to group specific servers together under a name and control them as a whole. This allows you to take down all of the servers in a group at once for maintenance or technical issues.

Cost Effective

Dynamic Link Manager Software ensures that servers from all around the world provide fast and reliable data. Whether it's used to maintain optimised data traffic, store vital information or reduce server downtime, this software provide companies with cost savings by reducing the personnel costs that are generally required for server operation and maintenance.
