Pinned topic GPFS storage option for docker

‏2018-10-23T14:29:18Z |

Hi,

We are trying to mount docker storage on GPFS. Is it supported? If it is supported what need to be storage-drive option? I noticed default is coming as overlay where as overlay2 is for local filesystem. Can you please help me to decide with these options?

 

Thanks,

-Rama.

    Hi Rama,

     

    We have not yet had customers ask for the the use of GPFS for the overlay function that is described on the following page:

    https://docs.docker.com/storage/storagedriver/overlayfs-driver/

     

    So we haven't tested this approach.  If you are intending to work with Docker images using GPFS in a manner described in the above link, can you please confirm this point and perhaps provide some details on your intended use case?

     

    Currently our testing and development has been focused on  making Spectrum Scale/GPFS available to containers that need persistent storage (there has also been research work related to the containerization of GPFS itself as well).

     

    Thanks,

    John

    HI John,

     

    We are interested to use GPFS storage for docker/containers which basically required overlay2 storage type. Do you have plans to work on this in future or already it is in place? We are using GPFS as storage for most our project.

     

    Thanks,

    -Rama.
