Ortus CacheBox Couchbase Provider Release!

Luis Majano |  August 06, 2013

 

Today we are releasing an open source Couchbase provider for our CacheBox library whether you use it standalone or within a ColdBox application.  We have been working with Couchbase NoSQL server and have been absolutely loving it.  This provider will allow you to leverage Couchbase Server from any CFML application that leverages CacheBox for your caching needs.  We have created two providers in our initial release: 1) For standalone Couchbase integration in any CFML application, 2) For ColdBox applications.  The latter will allow you to hook up Couchbase to your ColdBox applications and even allow you to use it for event and view caching alongside data caching.  We also take care of serializations and Java inter-operability for Adobe ColdFusion and Railo CFML as well.  You can also leverage the Couchbase ColdBox provider for Flash RAM capabilities as well.  As with anything we do here at Ortus, this provider is fully documented and professionally supported.

Intro to Couchbase Server for ColdFusion - Clustered NoSQL and Caching at its Finest

Brad Wood |  July 26, 2013

Caching is an important layer in today's applications that require high availability in clustered environments.  Caching demands require fast performance, lots of storage, and the ability to scale horizontally so your cache infrastructure can grow with your needs.  We take caching seriously which is why we've built tools like CacheBox which is not only a caching engine, but an aggregator and API for other caches.  In-process caches which run on the JVM alongside your application and share the same heap space are convenient and easy to set up, but they have limitations.  This is why we've spent time learning about other out-of-process caching strategies.
