Re: NFS

Hi Ted,

What's the procedure to enable privileged containers in a CF deployment ? I
could not yet find related properties in diego-release, or
garden-linux-release.

Do I understand correctly from [1] that applications pushed through
buildpack run in privileged containers by default and hence can use FUSE
clients, whereas docker-based CF apps run in non-priviledged containers [2]
?

Thanks in advance,

Guillaume.

Hi Raymond,

It is possible to use FUSE-based clients to connect to remote filesystems,
but only if your Cloud Foundry deployment has enabled privileged containers.

We are currently working on adding volume management to Cloud Foundry. NFS
and other distributed filesystems will be available as services, allowing
access without the need for privileged containers or FUSE.

Thanks,
Ted

Can a cloud foundry application make us of Network Filesystem share? If
so, would this scale?

Thanks,
