NAME

docker-volume - Create a new volume
 
 

SYNOPSIS

docker volume [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ --help]
 
 

DESCRIPTION

docker volume has subcommands for managing data volumes.
 

Data volumes

The docker volume command has subcommands for managing data volumes. A data volume is a specially-designated directory that by-passes storage driver management.
 
Data volumes persist data independent of a container's life cycle. When you delete a container, the Engine daemon does not delete any data volumes. You can share volumes across multiple containers. Moreover, you can share data volumes with other computing resources in your system.
 
To see help for a subcommand, use:
 
 
docker volume CMD help
 
For full details on using docker volume visit Docker's online documentation.
