We are very excited to bring you a new commercial product release for the Ortus Family: Couchbase Railo Extension  The Couchbase Railo Extension allows you to natively connect to a Couchbase NoSQL Server cluster and leverage it for distributed caching, session/client storage and distribution, cluster RAM file systems, and much more. It can allow your Railo servers to scale and extend easily by leveraging Couchbase NoSQL Server as the platform of choice for session/cluster managements, caching and virtual file-systems.

If you have ever asked yourself these questions, then our Railo Extension can help you:

  • Want to use round-robin balancing instead of sticky sessions?
  • How do you deal with session/client information when you have more than 1 server in your cluster?
  • How can I scale my Railo servers when I am running out of RAM?
  • Do you want your users to still be logged in even if a server in my cluster dies or is restarted?
  • Do you want to have a cluster-wide file system?
  • Do you want to be able to cache data in a distributed and elastic fashion?

We have been working with Couchbase NoSQL Server for a while now it has been a true pleasure to not only build scalable farms with it, but also it is incredibly responsive when it comes down to NoSQL and caching transactions.
