Storage in a container: Dealing with Docker storage
Docker is the de facto standard for the relatively new application and development and deployment system known as containerization. By nature ephemeral, Docker storage containers bring about a multitude of new challenges regarding data storage and protection, portability and persistence, legacy storage connectivity and more.
With storage budgets growing and new products, architectures and methodologies taking hold, the annual Storage magazine/SearchStorage purchasing survey reveals lengthier shopping lists that deviate a bit from the recent past. As with earlier surveys, the results provide insight into the adoption of developing storage categories: hyper-converged systems, object-based storage and all-flash arrays.
Virtualization, speedy flash storage and data-hungry applications challenge fabrics like never before. Thankfully, there are a number of important advances to storage interface and networking technologies to help keep data storage traffic moving bottleneck to storage fabrics from happening.

NAND flash adoption has been as fast as the speed it offers, but faster storage techs such as 3D XPoint and phase-change memory are on their way.
The software-defined storage/hyper-converged infrastructure model offers promise, but also discussion as to whether it needs to be reimagined.
Replacing slow spinning disks with faster flash storage affords ample benefits, but it doesn't remove the bottleneck. It just moves it somewhere else.
Storage vendors are leveraging existing technologies to build products to help hyper-converged systems tackle secondary storage.
