Docker Application Container

Install StorageOS as an application container for Docker Engine 1.10+ or Kubernetes 1.7+.


Enable nbd:

sudo modprobe nbd nbds_max=1024

Install the storageos/node container

Provide the host ip address in ADVERTISE_IP and a cluster discovery token with JOIN when you install the container:

docker run -d --name storageos \
    -e HOSTNAME \
    -e \
    -e JOIN=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx \
    --net=host \
    --pid=host \
    --privileged \
    --cap-add SYS_ADMIN \
    --device /dev/fuse \
    -v /var/lib/storageos:/var/lib/storageos:rshared \
    -v /run/docker/plugins:/run/docker/plugins \
    storageos/node:0.10.0 server

To use StorageOS volumes with containers, specify --volume-driver storageos:

$ docker container run -it --volume-driver storageos --volume myvol:/data busybox sh
/ #

This creates a new container with a StorageOS volume called myvol mounted at /data.
