Docker Volume Plugin for MooseFS Available Now !

April 24th, 2018 | Sapna Suhag


Dear MooseFS Users,

MooseFS can now be used as a persistent storage for Docker containers!

Thanks to Docker Volume Plugin for MooseFS, a Docker Volume can now be created, which will allow the data to exist even after the container/ volume is removed. We have prepared Docker Volume Plugin for MooseFS and released .deb and .rpm packages for RedHat/CentOS and Debian/Ubuntu host operating systems.

To use this plugin with containers:
  • Mount MooseFS storage on Docker hosts using MooseFS Client
  • Create Docker Volume which will be connected to the mountpoint on the host.

Our future goal is to provide a plugin which does not require any software on the host system.

Checkout the first version available at:

Please let us know if you have any questions at, we will be happy to help!
Kind regards,
MooseFS Team
