    Hello :)

    I am wondering who is using here XFS filesytem?

    Any issues so far with Centminmod latest beta or Centos 7 in general?

    Do you think it is better to use than EXT4?

    Thank you

    I'm always using XFS since CentOS 7 released.

    I don't like Docker that much.

    Main disadvantages regarding personal experience.

    Increased complexity due to an additional layer. This affects not only the deployment but also the development and build. I.e. Another layer to debug in setup but also in case of down time, malfunction, bugs, etc etc.

    Introducing Docker can be a demanding and time-consuming task. You have to evaluate if it is worth the effort and the increased complexity. Cost benefits seen not profitable / very difficult to make it profitable.

    Etc etc.

    P.s. Parts have been copied. I am not going to rewrite good examples ;)
