The Ortus BlogBox
We've been using our CommandBox Docker images for awhile now for multi-tier development and deployment. We've also received a lot of great feedback from the community that has helped to expand the power and flexibility of the those images in orchestrating CFML server environments.
One important aspect of non-development deployments of applications on the CommandBox image, is the need to warm up the server by seeding the CFML engine file system and configuration before the application is deployed in its target environment/tier. Other than the default Lucee 4.5 engine, which is what CommandBox, itself, runs on, any CFML engine specified in your application's
server.json file is downloaded upon server start. Depending on the latency of your Docker environment's connection, this can mean that a bare-bones first run of your application can take minutes to start up, rather than seconds. For obvious reasons, this is not desirable.

The folks at Jelastic have published an excellent article about how to deploy ContentBox in their Jelastic Cloud and scale it for distribution. Here is the article as well:
Today weâ€™ll show you how to deploy ContentBox to the Jelastic Cloud. In this deployment, ContentBox is powered by Railo, an open source CFML engine that can be deployed to any Java Servlet Container. Moreover, youâ€™ll see how to use its embedded Railo CFML cluster cache by the Memcached implementation and how it can help to create a fast and scalable caching layer for ContentBox.
In our case, the clustered cache offers shared session storage for all servers in a cluster. You can then store all the sessions in this cache that are available from all servers in the cluster. In other words, weâ€™ll use Memcached for session replication. So letâ€™s take an easy example.
