Manage Docker Storage & Volumes

Intro to volumes and storage.

TL;DR Overview of how docker storage & volumes work and how to manage them.

In this fourth part of the Dockerventure series, we are going to focus on how docker handles storage, how it manages container file systems, and showcase how we can effectively manage our data with volumes.

Check here for the first 3 parts: Intro DockerDockerfilesUseful Docker commands.

Default Docker File System

By default at creation time, docker creates the directory /var/lib/docker where it stores all its data regarding containers, images, volumes, etc.

When a new container is started, a new **read-write container layer **is added on top of the read-only image layers that were created during the build phase.

This container layer exists only while the container exists and when the container is killed this layer along with all the changes we made on top is lost.

Docker: Manage Data in Docker -Understanding “Docker Volumes” and “Bind Mounts”

Introduction

By Design, Docker containers don’t hold persistent data. Any data you write inside the docker’s writable layer is no longer available once the container is stopped. It can be difficult to get the data out of the container if another process needs it.

Also, a container’s writable layer is tightly coupled to the host machine where the container is running. You can’t easily move the data somewhere else.

Docker has two options for containers to store files in the host machine, so that the files are persisted even after the container stops: volumes, and bind mounts.

  • Volumes are stored in a part of the host filesystem which is managed by Docker (/var/lib/docker/volumes/ on Linux). Non-Docker processes should not modify this part of the filesystem. Volumes are the best way to persist data in Docker.
  • Bind mounts may be stored anywhere on the host system. They may even be important system files or directories. Non-Docker processes on the Docker host or a Docker container can modify them at any time.

Let’s understand them in detail one by one.

Docker Explained: Docker Architecture | Docker Registries

Following the second video about Docker basics, in this video, I explain Docker architecture and explain the different building blocks of the docker engine; docker client, API, Docker Daemon. I also explain what a docker registry is and I finish the video with a demo explaining and illustrating how to use Docker hub

In this video lesson you will learn:

  • What is Docker Host
  • What is Docker Engine
  • Learn about Docker Architecture
  • Learn about Docker client and Docker Daemon
  • Docker Hub and Registries
  • Simple demo to understand using images from registries

Docker Volume - How to Create, Manage and Populate in Docker

Volumes store the data generated by Docker. Using Docker Volume,we can achieve data persistence within Docker Containers. We can share directories between container and container versions using Docker Volumes. Also, we can upgrade containers, restart machines or share data without losing it. So let us discuss more of the Data persistence and Docker Volumes in this article. We will cover the following topics as part of this tutorial.

  • How to manage data in Docker?
  • Volume vs. Bind Mount in Docker
  • How to use Mounts in Docker?
  • How to use data volumes?
  • The -v or -mount flag?
  • Create and manage Docker data volumes.
  • How to use data volumes with docker-compose?
  • What are read-only data volumes?
  • Start a container/service with Docker data volume
  • How to populate a Docker data volume using a container?
  • What is a Volume driver?
  • Initial set-up – docker plugin install command
  • Create a data volume using a volume driver – docker volume create command
  • Start a container that creates a volume using a volume driver
  • Backup, restore, migrate, or remove data volumes in Docker
  • Backup a container
  • Restore container from backup
  • Remove docker volume

How to manage data in Docker?

We know that Docker has a layered storage implementation that aids in portability, efficiency, and faster performance. This storage implementation is also optimal for retrieving, storing, and transferring images across various environments. When we delete a Docker container, all the data associated or written to the container is deleted with it. So there is a need to persist the container data somehow even when the container gets deleted so that we need not worry about data and persist this data after the container ceases to exist.

Hence there is a need to persist data in containers. One of the best-recommended practices is the isolation of data from the container to retain the benefits of containerization. Here we keep data management distinctly separate from container lifecycle. We can implement multiple strategies to persist data or add persistence to containers that we will discuss next.
