Docker and GPFS

(Carlasau) #1

Hi all,

What storage driver would you recommand for using Docker on RHEL7.2 nodes with GPFS?
I have not chosen yet whether I was going for Docker EE or Docker CE.

I did not find help in the official Docker documentation nor in the compatibility matrix given for Docker EE. I just see that with RHEL I should use devicemapper, overlay2.
The only related thread I found relevant is from the IBM forum but it is quite old now. It recommends I guess to use VFS because it is POSIX file I/O.

Therefore I wanted to check whether any of you had some recent feedback on the subject, and what driver you noticed being the more adequate.

Thank you very much for your time!
