louieakil This is something I believe we are actually looking at fixing in the future for many reasons. As for why it wasn't done in the beginning I can't answer that because I don't know the answer.
louieakil I believe that the Bokt Redis extension stores the sessions in a redis database? But I'm not 100% certain on that. But I'm sure it's possible in some way. And if it's not currently possible it probably will be in the future.
