Exploring Storage Options for Docker Containers
Docker storage is hard.
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, moving Docker containers, servers, and volumes without impacting applications is a very common problem.
Over the last few years, I’ve worked with Linux containers and Docker to help build the scalable infrastructure that powers Modulus’ PaaS. Through this experience I’ve learned what tools are necessary to help create a seamless user experience for Docker administrators including rsync, GlusterFS, Ceph, BitTorrent Sync, and ClusterHQ. Get the slides for a breakdown of each of these tools and see how I solved the problem of keeping files in sync between multiple Docker containers.
