Problem Description:

With a non-clustered group of CF instances, Session data is stored on each individual server. This requires that we have sticky sessions configured at a load balancer level, or try to configure CF clustering, which is untenable with really large CF installations.

I want to be able to have my servers in a round-robin rotation, and go to a central session store for all session data. That store should be whatever I want it to be, with a common interface. Either a database, or disk somewhere, or a nosql caching cluster.

Steps to Reproduce:

Set up two CF instances in a round-robin load balancer. On Server 1, set a session variable.
Reload a page to dump the session.

Actual Result:

Depending on the server, you'll get either session values from Server 1 or Server 2

Expected Result:

Pull a session value from a central session store based on CFTOKEN or JSESSIONID, regardless of the server the user lands on.

+1000 - This is so important for the architecture of modern, highly available applications. Even if all Adobe supported was a simple key/value store with no automatic Java object serialization as the distributed cache, it would be extremely helpful.
