Couchbase: Cluster Setup + ORM Secondary Cache Introduction

Brad Wood |  July 31, 2013

This is our second part of our Couchbase and CFML series that we started last week.  In our first post, “Installation and Introduction to Couchbase” we talked about Couchbase Server, how to install it, and how it can help create a fast and scalable caching layer for your applications.  Today we’re going to talk about setting up a Couchbase cluster and look at our first use for it: as a Hibernate secondary cache for ColdFusion ORM.

Horizontal Scalability


In our previous post we set up a very simple cluster of only one node.  Let’s look at how Couchbase lets you expand your cluster horizontally as your needs increase.  A cluster can have as many nodes as you want, seriously!  All nodes in a cluster will be exact copies of each other in regards to their buckets and even their configuration.  When you set up the first node, you will choose how much RAM you want for each node in that cluster to allocate itself.  You can only add a new node to the cluster if it has enough RAM to allow for the node size specified in the cluster at setup.  Therefore, the total amount of RAM in the entire cluster will be the node size times the number of nodes.

Introducing Ortus DataBoss: Dynamic ORM Administrator

Luis Majano |  March 26, 2013

We are proud to announce today the public release of our product Ortus DataBoss.  We have been working on this product for a few years now and finally it has reached its culmination and is ready available for purchase.  So let me introduce to you our new brain child: DataBoss.


What is DataBoss?

Ortus DataBoss is an application that will help you manage CFML Object Relational Mapper (ORM) objects without the need of writing administrative code for them; thus a Dynamic Administrator.  DataBoss will talk to the underlying ORM engine (Hibernate) and get all the necessary information to manage all the ORM entities and its relationships in that specific CFML application DataBoss has been deployed to.  You can watch our introductory video to get a quick overview of what DataBoss is and how it can benefit your development.
