Pros of Linx
The key use of Linx is as a single platform for software development, data centre automation, and cloud hosting with elastic scale across service providers for public and private resources. Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) allows businesses to use the low-code model to deploy new applications that draw upon the existing database resources of legacy businesses.
Cons of Linx
While Linx is an excellent value-driven option, more expensive competitors can be more user-friendly.
Breakdown of core features
The Application Designer will support any public API with automated, no-code integration for mobile app development. The DirectoryWatch service is used to trigger remote events. The Application Server is used to automate DevOps processes with integration between the software application code layer, the data center architecture, and the service mesh. The Linx Application Server will run on both private and public cloud hardware with mission-critical security, job scheduling, and automated deployment of web server resources.
Linx supports a wide variety of plugins that assist with the development of web and mobile applications. Drag-and-drop functionality allows developers to implement low-code solutions in coordination with business logic, industrial processes, manufacturing, inventory, and delivery. Easy integration between database formats, APIs, CRMs, and code functions can be used to add further layers of DevOps automation in data center facilities. The ability to add services or schedule processing requirements through triggers is one of the most powerful aspects of the Linx iPaaS solution. Data center automation through containers using Docker & Kubernetes can speed up remote code processing in production for users at enterprise scale.
The Linx platform includes services, events, processes, triggers, and timers that can be configured for data center automation in support of scripts or databases. The available services for Linx automation include: DirectoryWatch, RabbitMQ, MSMQ, Cron, RESTful & SOAP APIs. The use of APIs can also facilitate the integration of third-party information into applications, such as product recommendations from AI/ML processing. The Linx platform has pre-built Microservice support that is part of the desktop IDE. The Linx web administration tools communicate with the IDE as part of the low-code iPaaS solution as well as orchestrating the version control utilities across sandbox files
