Liferay Connected Services (LCS) is a set of tools and services for managing your Liferay DXP instances. LCS can help you activate your instances and manage your subscriptions. In other words, LCS is like a butler for the mansion that is Liferay DXP. Even better, the features of LCS work regardless of whether your instance is on a single discreet server or distributed across a cluster. It’s like having a single butler that can serve several mansions at once!
