Docker Containers Share Data

#Introduction

In this tutorial, How to Share Data Between Docker Containers. Now, let go Docker Containers Share Data.

I will deploy 2 containers using docker share data between containers.

Prerequisites

  • Host OS: Ubuntu 21.04
  • Installed Docker

Create a Volume for Docker containers share data

We will create a Volume to save our data as command below:

docker volume create --name persistent-data-devops
Create a Volume for Docker containers share data

The volume is created in the /var/lib/docker/volumes directory.

vagrant@devopsroles:~$ sudo ls /var/lib/docker/volumes/persistent-data-devops/_data/test.txt
/var/lib/docker/volumes/persistent-data-devops/_data/test.txt

For example, We will deploy the first container which will use the persistent volume.

docker run -it --name=container1 -v persistent-data-devops:/data ubuntu:latest
deploy the first container
  • container named: container1
  • mount the persistent-data-devops volume into the /data directory within the new container

Login new container and create a new file

echo "Hello, www.devopsroles.com" >> /data/test.txt
Login new container and create a new file

We’ll now deploy a second container as command below

docker run -it --name=container2 -v persistent-data-devops:/data ubuntu:latest

Login second container and display content

cat /data/test.txt

Edit /data/test.txt file. I use the vim command.

Add the following at the bottom of the file:

This data share between containers 1 and 2

The output terminal as below

vagrant@devopsroles:~$ docker run -it --name=container2 -v persistent-data-devops:/data ubuntu:latest

root@ed16b6be95f8:/# cat /data/test.txt
Hello, www.devopsroles.com

root@ed16b6be95f8:/# vim /data/test.txt
root@ed16b6be95f8:/# cat /data/test.txt
Hello, www.devopsroles.com
This data share between containers 1 and 2

Exit the running container with the exit command. You can stop and remove them with the commands:

docker stop ID
docker rm ID
Docker Containers Share Data

After stopping and removing docker container1, we will deploy again, But data will remain data.
