Key Features & Benefits
Update Manager is a web-based application that allows you to administer the Update Server and manage the updates available to the users. For example, enable/disable accounts, specify a subscription expiration date, and more. The Update Manager includes a database of user accounts, products, update packages, as well as history log.
Update Web Service
Update Web Service is a web service application that handles requests and provides automatic update to the application. It includes methods to allow the Updater of the application to check for updates. If the account is valid, the Update Server returns the download URL to allow the Updater to download and install the update.
Local Update Server
When deployed as a local update server, the Update Server can automatically download the updates from the software update server and cache them locally. With this solution, you can control your organization's access to the updates. In addition, it helps to eliminate the need to download multiple copies of the same update, and helps to reduce unneccessary Internet bandwidth usage. The local update server solution also works great when your application is protected and licensed as floating network license.
