Rancher - NFS or convoy / nfs?

docker

(Leviya) #1

I have a question regarding rancher convoy-nfs.

What we have:

2 nodes (VM Ware using NetApp network storage) on two different machines
a NetApp NFS mountpoint (NFS service and mountpoint is provided by NetApp itself, no additional service needed)
What we want:

a network drive mapped into the filesystem of each node carrying the docker vm’s use data
As far as I understood, convoy-nfs does the nfs management inside of another docker instance, adding another layer of abstraction and overhead to it.

In this constellation, would you recommend convoy-nfs? does it make any sense using it here? Or is it smarter to have the nfs mounts done on each vm individually and then transparently mounted into the docker instance?

Thanks
