Hello fellow Ranchers, I am stuck, and we’re already running production systems on Rancher, which we might have to move back to “conventional” hosts if I don’t figure this out fairly soon. But I don’t want to …
So, I am trying to set up a system so that the container data moves with the container when it changes hosts. But I have a couple of requirements, and questions, which I seem to be unable to answer for myself, so my last hope are some smarter people than me here (shameless charming attempt )
An open convoy ticket states that convoy design is limited to one host. I just assume this is no longer the case with GlusterFS … right?
If I use EBS, do the storages move with the container when using Convoy? (If yes, has anyone done it yet? Just for exchange of information?)
If I use the GlusterFS catalog item, what do I get? One volume only? Can I use this with several different container types? (Let’s say uploaded files for Owncloud and a Wiki and a ticketing system, for example). I’m also new to Gluster, so this might be a stupid question
Also if I use the GlusterFS catalog item, can I backup the contained data? Or access it on the underlying host? And if yes, how? Anybody done that? I still want separate backups, really, which is why I’d find EBS use charming.
Can Convoy snapshot GlusterFS mounts?
If I use an external GlusterFS cluster, how do I tell convoy about it?
Is there anyone who has set up a moving persistent container storage system with Rancher + “X” (whatever X is) with whom I can swap information?
So, that’s a lot, I know, but … HELP PLEASE!
