Our application requires the presence of data on two filestores. On our current Kubernetes configuration, we use a persistent volume like so:

apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolume
  name: fileserver-input
    storage: 1T
  - ReadWriteMany
    path: /mypath
    server: XX.XXX.XXX.XXX

Which we then add as a volume in our deployment:

      - mountPath: /mypath
        name: my-path

How can this be accomplished with Cloud Run on GKE? We have tried running commands to mount the filestore in the docker container, but we have not had success because the container does not run as privileged.

Is there a way to either specify a volumeMount like on regular GKE, or to run the container in privileged mode in Cloud Run on GKE?


Use the - -container-privileged flag to run a container with runtime privilege.

Run command similar to below:

gcloud compute instances create-with-container busybox-vm \
   --container-image docker.io/busybox:1.27 \

Remember to change image to your own.

More information you can find here: gcloud-containers.

I hope it helps.

    Is there a way to mount/run as privileged in a fully managed instance of Cloud Run? – threed Jul 11 '19 at 19:21

As I understand as of now it is not yet supported: https://cloud.google.com/run/docs/using-gcp-services
