dotMobi and Nginx, Inc. Bring Device Awareness to Web Servers

Nginx, Inc., provider of the high-performance NGINX Web server, and mobile Web technology specialist dotMobi today announced the immediate availability of a device detection module for NGINX using dotMobi’s DeviceAtlas® solution.

Speedy, accurate and reliable device detection is critical for serving customers across an increasingly fragmented Web landscape of desktop, mobile and gaming devices. Now, a new DeviceAtlas module for NGINX allows the task of real-time device detection to shift to the server layer from the traditional application layer in the “technology stack.” This means all applications above the server layer of the technology stack benefit from world-class device intelligence in real time, which reduces infrastructure costs and optimizes application loads.

Igor Sysoev, Principal Architect and CTO of Nginx, Inc., said, “On-the-fly device detection for large-scale, heavy-load websites presents a performance challenge at the application layer. The DeviceAtlas module for NGINX enables us to offload device detection from applications to the Web server, a logical step that helps us ensure the best possible customer experience.”

dotMobi developed the DeviceAtlas module in close collaboration with Nginx, Inc. To ensure that the module worked as designed, dotMobi enlisted online soccer community site Transfermarkt, a long-time NGINX user with Web portals in seven countries and demanding traffic needs to be met. As an example, the www.transfermarkt.de site alone receives 36 million visitors each month, making it one of Alexa’s 3,000 busiest sites. The DeviceAtlas module for NGINX gave Transfermarkt the high-speed device awareness they needed to handle mobile traffic and quickly adapt content according to the requesting device’s properties.

"The DeviceAtlas module for NGINX is significantly more efficient than integrating a device detection solution at the application layer for a site with our level of traffic,” said Dirk Willibrand, System Administrator at Transfermarkt.

Eileen O’Sullivan, dotMobi COO, said, “One of the many ways that DeviceAtlas leads the device detection marketplace is that it was built from the ground up for high-performance, high-speed device detection. Adding this functionality at the Web server layer of the technology stack offers significant advantages to organizations who value performance and efficiency.”

DeviceAtlas provides detailed and up-to-date device intelligence on mobile and Web-enabled devices with a high-speed API capable of making millions of detections per second. DeviceAtlas is used by a variety of large brands and Fortune 100 companies, including Adobe, Sprint, IBM, General Motors and Target. The DeviceAtlas module for NGINX is available from www.deviceatlas.com.

For more in-depth information on the DeviceAtlas module for NGINX, dotMobi has a case study available at www.deviceatlas.com/case-studies/nginx-case-study.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
