Since Railo is no longer in development we recommend you look at our Lucee Server Extension instead

The Ortus Couchbase Extension is a Railo Server Extension that allows your server to natively connect to a Couchbase NoSQL Server cluster and leverage it for built-in caching, session/client storage and distribution, and much more. With our extension you will be able to scale and extend your Railo CFML applications with ease.

Our extension will enhance your Railo server with some of the following capabilities:

  • Store session/client variables in a distributed Couchbase cluster
  • Get rid of sticky session load balancers, come to the round-robin world!
  • Session/client variable persistence even after Railo restarts
  • Ability to leverage the RAM resource virtual file system as a cluster-wide file system
  • Cache connection capabilities for providing distributed & highly scalable query, object, template, function caching
  • Much more




Couchbase Server is a distributed NoSQL document database for interactive applications. Its scale-out architecture runs in the cloud or on commodity hardware and provides a flexible data model, consistent high-performance, easy scalability and always-on 24x365 availability. Thanks to a flexible JSON model, Couchbase Server makes it easy to modify your applications without the constraints of a fixed database schema. Submillisecond, high-throughput reads and writes give you consistent high performance. Couchbase Server is easy to scale out, and supports topology changes with no downtime.



You can purchase our extension for as little as $12.42/month or purchase a life-time license as well. That's just three fancy shmancy cups of coffee a month!

Our extension has been compiled and tested for the following platforms:
  • Railo
  • Couchbase 2.0+
The extension is licensed on a per Railo instance basis. That means that if you have 2+ instances on the same physical machine, you will need 2+ licenses for the extension. Another way to see it, is that it is licensed on a per JVM instance basis, where each Railo instance runs on a separate JVM instance.
No. You get up to 4 FREE development/staging or non-public facing instance activations per license purchased. If you need any more activations for these type of servers then please contact us at
Yes! Once the extension is installed and activated on your Railo instance you can register as many cache connections as you want and on a server or web context level.
When you complete the checkout, we will process a one-time charge for the yearly or life-time fee. There will be no other automated charges to your card. At the end of the year, you will need to purchase another year of maintenance for each of the yearly licenses you purchased only if you want to stay on the yearly plan. The software will not expire or degrade, but if you decide not to renew the yearly fee, you will be charged the difference to make it a life-time license.
Couchbase Server is dual-licensed where they offer a FREE community version but also an Enterprise Paid version. It will be your choice on what version of Couchbase you would like to install in your farm. We can also help you get your Couchbase subscriptions licenses, install them and configured them for you if you need to.
If you need more activations for your development/staging or non-public facing instances, please contact us at
