    From: https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/run/#set-storage-driver-options-per-container

    docker run -it --storage-opt size=120G fedora /bin/bash

    This (size) will allow to set the container rootfs size to 120G at
    creation time. This option is only available for the devicemapper,
    btrfs, overlay2, windowsfilter and zfs graph drivers. For the
    devicemapper, btrfs, windowsfilter and zfs graph drivers, user cannot
    pass a size less than the Default BaseFS Size. For the overlay2
    storage driver, the size option is only available if the backing fs is
    xfs and mounted with the pquota mount option. Under these conditions,
    user can pass any size less then the backing fs size.

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