Do Docker volumes have to be on the local server?

by Merc   Last Updated January 02, 2018 02:00 AM

I am dockerising an existing node app. The app allows users to upload user images. I am thinking of creating a docker volume image, and share it amongst the running containers so that they can all write and read those images.


  • Can I deploy the docker image on Amazon and expect all of the instances to access it?
  • Could I potentially have the image running on "cloud provider A", and allow other docker instances to access it from "cloud provider B"?
