Pre-built Docker images are available at dockerhub.com/tenzir.
All images expose a docker volume at
/var/db/vast. That volume contains the
database contents of VAST, i.e., the index and the archive.
The images use a Linux system user called
vast with limited privileges. When
you mount a directory for persistent data to
/var/db/vast, make sure the
vast user inside the container can write to it.
Start VAST in a container and detach it to the background.
Build an Image
You can build a docker image as follows:
There also exists a build script that will tag and exported the Docker images as
tag.gz files. The script accepts an optional parameter to build a specific
branch or tag.
