In the first two posts in this series we discussed the need for data persistency in containers then we discussed where the data actually lives on our systems. Now let’s look at specifying the location of the data on the underlying file system of the base OS. This is the third post in a three part series on Persisting SQL Server Data in Docker Containers. The first post introducing Docker Volumes is here.
So in my previous post, we discussed Docker Volumes and how they have a lifecycle independent of the container enabling us to service the container image independent of the data inside the container. Now let’s dig into Volumes a little bit more and learn where Docker actually stores that data on the underlying operating system. This is the second post in a three part series on Persisting SQL Server Data in Docker Containers.
What’s the number one thing a data professional wants to do with their data…keep it around. Let’s talk about running SQL Server in Containers using Docker Volumes on a Mac This is the first post in a three part series on Persisting SQL Server Data in Docker Containers. The second post on where Docker actually stores your data is here. And the third post on mapping base OS directories directly into containers is here.
