Provisioning and Managing Storage for Docker Containers | Docker


In this talk, we will discuss storage concepts related to containers on the Docker platform with the perspective of what is important throughout the lifecycle of an application.

We will focus on application provisioning: creating persistent volumes and policies for stateful data and management: replication and failover scenarios, backup/restore, monitoring etc. Through this talk, we will cover the latest storage features and also some of the current and future direction of container storage.

Key concepts covered about running stateful applications:
– Persistent Volumes
– Provisioning (Static vs Topology-aware)
– Data Availability (failover with scheduler policies)
– Data Protection (using Backup/Restore)
– Monitoring (using Prometheus/Grafana dashboards) We will look at each of the characteristics in detail with demos.
