We are in the process of porting our application to fit in docker containers and the Balena Eco system. In that process we see a possible need for using the persistence and flush functionality of named volumes - we just have the minor issue that we are talking data in terms of several GB. Is it possible to place a named volume on an external media to support large amounts of data while still keeping the features of the named volumes?
Unlike typical IOT devices we handle a lot of data, e.g. video files or point clouds that range in size from a few megabytes to several or even hundreds of gigabytes. The usual workflow is to store the data locally as our bandwith is limited. We are especially interested in the options to flush or persist named volumes during updates. This could of course be part of our app but we would like to use a built-in feature if possible.
