Docker daemon allows, according to documentatio, using memory storage driver for its images. Has anybody any daily business experiences with that?

1 Answer 1


According to the documentation, memory storage is intended for testing purposes only and should never be used in production. The only practical purpose I can think of for this might be state testing, such as with Serverspec or Inspec, to validate configurations. Using memory storage for this purpose might be a little faster and use less disk storage. I'm not sure those benefits are worth the effort to implement.
