We are very excited to bring you a new commercial product release for the Ortus Family: MongoDB Server Lucee Extension The MongoDB Server Lucee Extension allows you to natively connect to a MongoDB Server cluster and leverage it for distributed caching, session/client storage and distribution, cluster RAM file systems, and much more. It can allow your Lucee servers to scale and extend easily by leveraging MongoDB Server as the platform of choice for session/cluster managements, NoSQL, caching and virtual file-systems.
We are very excited to bring you another release for our Redis Lucee Extension. This is a minor release and it sports quite a few updates thanks to customer feedback, especially on clients working with hosted Redis solutions that would required SSL and password authentication. We have expanded the connections to have more configuration parameters, especially if you are dealing with high traffic applications.

- Do you want to be able to cache data in a distributed and elastic fashion?
