InRule Technology®, the premier Business Rule Management System for the Microsoft Platform, announced today that InRule®Version 4.5 is generally available. InRule Version 4.5 includes an enhanced rule execution engine, designed to improve performance and reduce memory consumption.
In tests InRule Version 4.5 executed most rule applications 200% to 500% faster than in previous versions. InRule utilizes new functionality introduced in .NET 4.0 and distributes execution across multiple cores, better utilizing today’s multicore CPUs.
InRule Version 4.5 also delivers reduced memory consumption. Tests indicate memory consumption is reduced for many types of rule applications by 50%. For complex rule applications with many entities, memory consumption will be reduced even more dramatically. In one test that loads over 5,000 entities, memory was reduced by over 94%. Additional performance tuning options are also included in this release.
