In this chapter, we have looked at three different volume drivers that all work with Docker's plugin architecture.
While the three drivers offer three very different approaches to providing persistent storage for your containers, you may have noticed that Docker Compose files and how we interact with the volumes using the Docker client was pretty much the same experience across all three tools, probably to the point where I am sure it was starting to get a little repetitive.
This repetitiveness showcases, in my opinion, one of the best features of using Docker plugins, the consistent experience from the client's point of view. At no point, after we configured the tools, did we have to really think about or take into consideration how we were using the storage, we just got on with it.
This allows us to reuse our resources, such as Docker Compose files and containers, across multiple environments such as local VMs, cloud-based Docker hosts, or even Docker clusters.
However, at the moment...
