Our fastest device detection product just got faster. We’re proud to announce the upgrade of our fastest device detection product, WURFL InFuze. We listened to our customers who have significant speed requirements, like the programmatic advertising industry. Our engineering team has delivered a major API upgrade that doubles speed and makes containerized deployments easier.
It’s significantly faster
By upgrading WURFL InFuze API from 1.9.5 to 1.11.0, we have accelerated lookups by 132%. For customers still on earlier versions like 1.8.3, this is equivalent to a 352% increase in speed. For more detailed information, please contact us for a white paper on performance and scalability of the WURFL solution.
A shift to C from C++ and a complete re-engineering of the API delivers faster performance. While writing the C API, our engineering team debottlenecked resource constraints and implemented more effective caching strategies.
Memory footprint is 40% smaller
Careful optimization of the wurfl.xml import phase resulted in super fast wurfl load times and less overall memory consumption.
Support for Alpine Linux
Our upgraded WURFL InFuze product supports Alpine Linux for small, efficient packaging for containerization.
