We're currently evaluating Perforce as an alternative to SVN. We want to be able to scale up to say 200 concurrent developers, with say 1 TB of assets in a project (though it's unlikely a given developer will work with all 1TB at once). About about a year ago we started slowly moving our servers and services to Docker (Jenkins, artefact storage, build slaves etc) and we've been very pleased with the result. Our evaluation Perforce server is also running in a Docker container, and we haven't hit proper load yet because we're still using the 5 user free evaluation license.

So, before we get too far into this, I was wondering - does anyone out there have practical experience running a Perforce server in a Docker container, and if so, are there are any significant performance or scaling pitfalls we need to be aware of? I'm not too interested in debating virtualizing platforms in general, we like Docker because it works for us, we know its pros and cons, we're more interested in Perforce inside Docker specifically. Thanks.
