“Forward-thinking enterprises are moving towards efficient load balancing of mobile traffic by using reliable, scalable, and secure software application delivery controllers like HAProxy. With WURFL InFuze, we can increase that efficiency while delivering valuable device intelligence to applications across the enterprise,” said HAProxy Technologies CEO Dujko Radovnikovic.

“We are excited to add HAProxy to our WURFL portfolio to better support our enterprise customers,” said ScientiaMobile CTO Luca Passani. Adding, “WURFL has always focused on innovation and accuracy. This expansion stays true to the high quality of our device intelligence offerings.”

HAProxy users can deploy virtualized, containerized, or physical instances with WURFL support on commodity servers giving them the ability to rapidly respond to traffic while containing costs. WURFL InFuze for HAProxy provides a high-speed API that complements HAProxy’s fast and highly-available application delivery solution.

WURFL users receive weekly updates of the device detection repository, which is more than 99 percent accurate and identifies more than 50,000 devices. HAProxy can pass WURFL’s device intelligence via amended HTTP headers to any downstream application. These applications can leverage WURFL device capabilities such as: device model, device price, device manufacturer, form factor, screen size, screen resolution, OS version, browser, and more.
