A look at Docker for Mac 17.04 Performance
André Rømcke, Vice President Engineering at eZ Systems, blogged about Docker for Mac running eZ Platform as Symfony app. His blog provides good insight on the current state of Docker and how eZ Platform performs on this platform.
Here’s a bit from what André wrote on the blog, "As part of our internal knowledge Friday initiative I decided to spend my time sharing on a topic I have been following lately, the introduction to a feature in Docker which finally attempts to combat the file system (I/O) performance issues found most prominently in Docker for Mac."
