Devicemapper and lvm thin provisioning

docker

(Brutuz) #1

what is the reason why its recommended to use lvm thin provisioning rather than the conventional lvm allocation?

is it ease in storage management? performance related? or something else?

might want to read through https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/storagedriver/device-mapper-driver/ to see some of the background.
