Using SoftNAS for Docker
So I’ve been doing some testing with Docker and SoftNAS. This brief tutorial will show you how to connect docker to SoftNAS. This will give you a couple of pretty neat options for storage while using Docker.
First a couple of cool things you can do with SoftNAS and Docker:
- Share persistent storage between Docker containers.
- Snapshot storage to S3 or elsewhere to save after Docker container has exited.
Before I start, I’m going to assume you have a SoftNAS instance running from the AWS Marketplace. In my case, I used the ephemeral storage to run the storage pool (obviously persistent storage like EBS or S3 should be used for production deployments). The ephemeral storage is free 🙂 There’s also a free micro instance available to DevOps, along with AWS Free Tier support. There are two important parts of setting up this instance in AWS.
