Percona In Production With Docker


Can you please help me to find out if we can deploy MySQL server using Docker in production ? I have a database of around 150GB with several hundred tables. Need to understand in which scenarios we can use docker in production for MySQL and where to avoid it.

Hello @shahidbashir7861,
You can absolutely deploy mysql in production using docker. Make sure you either A) create a docker volume, or B) map an existing directory into docker for data storage. Unless you need to squeeze out every single Ghz from your CPU and every last IO from your disks, I can’t think of a situation where docker would be avoided.
