Docker Volume driver choice with docker swarm


(sharon) #1

Hello,
Im trying to use ElasticSearch 6.1.1 with docker swarm.
I noticed that it is impossible to use local volume on the host ( as the swarm can create many ES containers on the same host and they cant have the same volume)
I decided then to use the Docker volume API, but i see there are many drivers i can choose from.

In the elastic documentation they choose the "local" driver
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/docker.html

I wanted to know why? is this the best practice? what are the recommendations and the parameters to know which driver i should choose for my elastic cluster?
