Distributed File System With Swarm

Hi all,

I want to implement a distributed file system on my server, but do so with Docker Swarm Deploy. I have been looking at using Gluster, but it requires priveleged permissions. so won’t work with Docker Swarm Deploy… I’d have to set it up outside of Docker or do it one at a time via Docker calls. Is anyone using a distributed file system with Docker Swarm / Docker compose and if so, how did you set it up? Can you provide examples?

Many thanks,

Anyone have any ideas?


I have been asking the same questions and looking at the following.

Cephs, XtremeFS and its commercial Quobyte offering.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_distributed_file_systems there are many and each takes a bit of reading.
Had to paste that as only allowed to links.

Lustre & Glustre also.

Much is aimed at datacenters all all in one and trying to get a system that could run specifically for simple local lan distributed storage across multiple low cost nodes and backup to the likes of sia or storj.
