Docker with overlay support

Just got the new beta version of Docker, with depreciation warning of AUFS. It's so bad news when InterSystems does not support used by default storage driver overlay2. Recently I thought to play with Google Kubernetes Engine, and realized that I can't work with InterSystems products there due to incompatibility with Storage Driver. Maybe it's already time to think about support?

Hi Dmitry, sure.

So, GKE, if anything makes things easier in general. Also you might be interested to know that Google has just announced GKE for on-prem (it's Alpha (this is Google alpha ;) so expect it by the fall in beta)). This is a super-cool news IMO. You'll be able to seamlessly manage your K8s cluster on-prem and in the cloud. Furthermore, you'll also be able to grow or expand your on-prem cluster in the cloud as and how you might need more resources.

Anyway, back to your question: you need to define "pv" or persistent volumes in K8s. In GKE: go to Kubernetes Menu --> Storage and you'll be able to define your cluster-wide storage there.
