Subject Re: How to run CouchDB 2.x on macOS
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2017 21:31:26 GMT
And a follow-up: I also created a service that works with docker swarm: This makes it really
easy to set up a cluster, but the problem with this solution is that if you
have multiple servers, the CouchDB files can't really move around unless
you use some network file system like EFS. (This is a known limitation of
docker swarm). And, unfortunately, I've found that running CouchDB over EFS
is about 10 times slower than running with a local disk. So, I'd only
recommend the docker swarm route if you have a single server and just want
to spin up a few nodes for testing.

Sorry, if this is a little overkill :). My top recommendation is definitely if you just want a
single node, but others may think otherwise.
