Can't remove record from aerospike

I decided to try aerospike but I have some problems.
I’m using aerospike in a docker:

    image: 'aerospike/aerospike-server:3.10.0-1'
        - '5310:3000'
        - '5311:3001'
        - '5312:3002'
        - '5313:3003'
        - './companies-data/data:/opt/aerospike/data'
        - './companies-data/config:/opt/aerospike/etc'
    command: '/usr/bin/asd --foreground --config-file /opt/aerospike/etc/aerospike.conf'

When I create a record and then restart the docker container the data is still there, so volumes are set up correctly. However when I remove a record and restart the docker container then the record is still there, it’s not removed. Before a restart it works fine: the record is removed but after docker-container restart it is there again.

        if (err) {
            return reject(err);

    The delete mechanism deletes the index entry to the data, thereby freeing the index space and storage space immediately. However, it does not durably write a tombstone marker record to storage, so deleted records can be restored with a full cold reboot of the cluster or network partition scenarios.

    This is from the latest Aerospike Blog Post about the 3.10 release.

    2 features available in the Aerospike Enterprise Edition do address this behavior:

    1- Fast start (index preserved in shared memory).
    2- Durable Deletes (see blog post mentioned above).

    You can read more about the behavior you experienced on this thread on the Aerospike Forum.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
