Git Large File Storage

Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server like or GitHub Enterprise.

Sounds useful, although I don't normally store large binaries inside git repos.

Setting up persistent storage in a container ecosystem is still a big hassle though. Seems Flocker is now an option not to consider unless it is clear how the open-source project continues.
