If you use either macOS or Windows on your server and run Docker on it, then docker-sync can boost performance. If you have a regular Linux-based server, then there is no need for docker-sync as the underlying file system problem does not exist. On Linux, Docker uses the file system of the host directly, on macOS and windows there is a thin layer of a virtual machine that slows down everything.
