Anyone have a good tutorial on Docker containerizing and upgrading and managing Splunk in a container environment?

All,

Anyone have a good walk through or tutorial on managing Splunk as a container? Upgrades and not loosing configs? SHC and user local files? Mounting disks for indexers into the container? That sort of thing.

then customize and even try it on kubernets

Basically I didn't have my head around the core concepts in docker when it comes to data persistence. Had to stop, do some Docker 101 training then the material above made a lot of sense. Thanks!
