https://docs.docker.com/storage/ says “Bind Mounts” are inferior to “Volumes”. But volumes run on the host machine’s disk, not the DO Volume.
Changing the Docker “data root” could move all things Docker to the DO Volume, but I worry about a) persisting unnecessary data and b) running two hosts from the same data root.
What’s the best way to persist a docker-compose.yml app’s data on a DO volume?
