High availability options for docker plug-in

I'm looking into the docker plug-in functionality and docker in general. When reading up on docker volume drivers and plug-ins and Flocker etc. i'm unsure what the Nimble Docker plug-in actually is.

When i look at Flocker, it seems to be a framework to provide HA for docker volumes across docker hosts. Containers can run on any host in that case, provided they have access to the same shared storage for access to their volumes. Flocker seems to work with plugins for several storage vendors to orchestrate HA accross hosts.


Is the Nimble Docker Plug-in also Flocker plug-in? or does it provide such (HA) features in a different way?


sorry... just trying to understand new tech as a non-dev
