You can spin up a Docker container in a few seconds. A quick “docker run” command, and voila, your shiny new app is online. But this simplicity often leads to a performance bottleneck – High Disk Space usage.
Docker focuses on fast container deployment, and doesn’t focus much on disk space management. That’s why manual intervention is required to manage disk space in Docker machines. (more…)
