Index Manager is a crawling server and high-speed search engine. A server application for Windows Server, it is the heart of a FotoWare DAM system and works in the background, continuously updating metadata and scanning new content as it moves around the system.
Index Manager scans continuously associated file servers and file shares, and creates virtual content pools (indexes) out of the different asset sources. It answers search requests of the connected clients and streams the indexing data live to the connected FotoWare server applications.
Several editions of Index Manager exist to allow you to choose an edition that suits the number of assets in your DAM system and the level of performance you need.
