  • > What if the docker daemon is on a storage server and the host volume of /stuff contains, say, 10 terabytes of photo album content?

    In this extreme example I think probably a bind mount might make sense, especially if the files are already there. But the named volume would just be stored in /var/lib/docker/volumes/some-volume-name, so as long as that /var/lib has 10TB I don't see the problem.

    I can use my sftp container [1] to be able to sftp directly into a volume, but I've not yet transferred 10TB with it :)

  • It's not exactly what you're asking for, but <> is pretty neat. It's easy to get going and will deploy any docker images you want with a bit of their config added.

    As for AWS ECS mentioned in the other reply -- it's great if you ever get it working, but it is a nightmare to learn and use.
