Full Description

Dynomite runtime container

The dynomite container provides a clean, reusable and immutable runtime environment for the Dynomite server.

What is Dynomite?

Dynomite is a framework that turns single server databases into scalable, distributed databases.

Specifically, Dynomite is a Dynamo-inspired layer that provides sharding, replication, a gossiper, a partitioner and other shared database infrastructure.

DynomiteDB currently provides the Redis API for accessing both in-memory and persistent backends. A common API allows you to reuse queries, data models and knowledge across both traditional database and caching workloads.

DynomiteDB currently supports the following pluggable backends:

  • Redis: Big data cache for in-memory workloads
  • LMDB: Traditional database (persistent storage) for high performance workloads
  • RocksDB: Traditional database (persistent storage) for big data workloads on SSD
  • LevelDB: Traditional database (persistent storage) for big data workloads on hard drives (i.e. spinning disks)

How to use this image

Start a dynomite instance

docker run --name dynomite --net=host -d -p 8102:8102 -p 8101:8101 dynomitedb/dynomite

Use a custom dynomite.yaml configuration file

You can provide Dynomite with a custom configuration file as show below. In this example, we first clone a git repository that has a custom dynomite.yaml file.

If you plan to use a custom configuration file, then stop and delete the dynomite container if you previously ran the command above. docker stop dynomite, then docker rm dynomite.

mkdir -p ~/repos && cd $_

git clone

cd docker-custom-conf-files

docker run --name dynomite --net=host -d -p 8102:8102 -p 8101:8101 -v ${PWD}/dynomite.yaml:/etc/dynomitedb/dynomite.yaml dynomitedb/dynomite
