Shutdown of docker should be `stop` not `kill`

    According to the docs [here](, you issue a `docker kill` to terminate the storage node. This is akin to `kill -9`. Assuming the docker container does proper shutdown (which it should), a `docker stop` should signal the container to close all resources and exit within the specified time period (defaults to 10 seconds: and then issues a kill if the container fails to exit. Doing a hard shutdown on a storage node seems like the wrong way to go.
