<p>Introduction to new caching engines ColdFusion already has support for caching using ehcache. There are many caching engines available in the market and each has its pros and cons. Depending upon your application, one caching engine might suit your application more than another. So we need to integrate more caching engines. In the 2018 release of ColdFusion, we have added support for 3 new caching engines JCS (Java caching system) Redis Memcached Java Caching System (JCS) Pros One of the fastest caching […]</p>

This is a good article. Will this be added into the documentation for cacheing?

James, We already have, <a href="https://helpx.adobe.com/in/coldfusion/developing-applications/changes-in-coldfusion/caching-enhancements.html" rel="nofollow">https://helpx.adobe.com/in/coldfusion/developing-applications/changes-in-coldfusion/caching-enhancements.html</a>. However, I'll update this page with some new info from the blog.

To folks reading this post, it seems worth noting that the new Distributed Caching options in CF2018 (Redis and memcached) are in fact offered only in the Enterprise (and trial and developer) edition only, and NOT in Standard. Can someone from Adobe confirm? I'm pretty sure I did, when I was helping someone whose site was running CF2018 Standard. While it DID offer the new JCS option (in the CF Admin caching page), it did NOT offer the UI elements for Redis or memcached. If this is so, then it seems this page (and others) ought to indicate that for readers. From what I've seen, there's a mishmash of indications across various docs (perhaps reflecting a time when edition differences were not known or were not yet stated publicly). Now several months later, they ought to be updated. First, the  <a href="http://wwwimages.adobe.com/www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/products/coldfusion/pdfs/cf2016/ColdFusion_2016_buying_guide.pdf" rel="nofollow">buying guide PDF</a> (alone, currently) DOES indicate currently that "Distributed cache" is Enterprise-only, showing a "New" indication under only the CF2018 Enterprise column and NOT the CF2018 Standard column. But then the <a href="https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-standard/features.html" rel="nofollow">CF features page for Standard</a> DOES list distributed caching, as if it IS a feature of that edition (of course, so does the <a href="https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-enterprise/features.html" rel="nofollow">Enterprise version of that page</a>, as it should). And this blog post is not the only page that make no mention of edition differences regarding caching. First, the doc page point to in the comments above currently does not, nor does this <a href="https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-family/buying-guide.html" rel="nofollow">page also called "buying guide"</a> (despite the name, it's NOT just an HTML version of the PDF listed above). Finally, again in making any such changes, it would be important to clarify that (as I understand it) the JCS feature IS in Standard (while new, it's not technically "distributed"). As always, hope that helps.
