The Ortus Redis Extension is a Lucee Server Extension that allows your server to natively connect to a Redis Server or Cluster, an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. It supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs and geospatial indexes with radius queries. Redis has built-in replication, Lua scripting, LRU eviction, transactions and different levels of on-disk persistence, and provides high availability via Redis Sentinel and automatic partitioning with Redis Cluster. Learn more about Redis.

Our extension will enhance your Lucee CFML server with the following capabilities :

  • Add native Redis functionality to any Lucee Server
  • Connect to a Redis server or a Redis cluster
  • Store session/client variables in a distributed Redis cluster
  • Leverage the Redis publish/subscribe features to create real-time messaging
  • Get rid of sticky session load balancers, come to the round-robin world!
  • Session/client variable persistence even after Lucee 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

Our extension has been compiled and tested for the following platforms:
  • Lucee 5.3+
  • Redis Server 5.X
The extension is licensed on a per Lucee 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 Lucee 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 Lucee 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.
Redis Server is available as open-source, but they also offer a commercial and professionally supported redis enterpriseversion.
If you need more activations for your development/staging or non-public facing instances, please contact us at .

You can download a trial version of our extension that is fully functional for a period of time so you can test drive it. Just fill out the form below and we will send you a link to download and install our extension!

Here are some of the major features of our Redis Extension:

  • Add Redis functionality to any Lucee application
  • Install at the server level (Available to all contexts)
  • Create Cache connections in the Lucee administrator or via the Application.cfc to connect to any network-accessible Redis cluster
  • Set and get objects from Redis via standard CFML functions and tags cachePut(), cacheGet(), <cfcache action="get|put">
  • Fully supports all built-in Lucee cache functions including wildcard filters
  • Seamlessly distribute storage of the following to any bucket in a Redis cluster
    • Lucee session storage
    • Lucee client storage
    • Lucee RAM resource ram://...
  • Seamlessly cache the following to any timeout-sensitive bucket in a Redis cluster
    • Results of database queries <cfquery cachedwithin>
    • Results of deterministic functions <cffunction cachedwithin>
    • Complex or simple objects in your application's code
    • Cached templates <cfcache action="content|cache|serverCache">
  • Ability to publish and subscribe to Redis channels for pub/sub capabilities:
  • Registers new CFML Built-In Functions (BIFs) for interacting with the Redis client:
  • RedisGetClient( cacheName )
  • RedisGetClusterNodes( cahcename )
  • RedisGetConnectionPool( cahcename )
  • RedisGetProvider( cahcename )
  • RedisPublish( channel, message, cacheName )
  • RedisSubscribe( subscriber, channels, cacheName )
  • Exposes Redis Server statistics to cache alements and updated element tracking
  • Extremely lightweight and fast

We have been working with Redis Server for a number of years now and we love setting up clusters and planning your distributed caching with a focus on CFML. We have built several solutions on top of Redis as well to help with session distribution, ColdBox data, event and view caching. If you need distributed caching, session management or NoSQL integrations, then we are here to help.
