In this tutorial, you will learn how to provision StorageOS volumes and access them from containers on a three node cluster.

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Provisioning storage

Step 1 of 6

Introduction

For this tutorial we will use the StorageOS CLI to explore the cluster. This is already installed; run storageos --version to check.

Open terminals on the second and third hosts (type yes when prompted):

ssh [email protected] ssh [email protected]

Use docker ps to check that the StorageOS container is running on all three nodes.

On start-up, StorageOS nodes communicate with each other to discover the overall status of the cluster and establish consensus. Check out the nodes in this cluster:

storageos node ls --format "table {{.Name}}\t{{.Address}}\t{{.Capacity}}"
