Local (and S3) cloud storage server using Minio

Minio is a local cloud object storage server, it’s open source, released under Apache License V2.0, allowing developers and devops to have a local and a public cloud storage to:

  • backup VMs
  • backup containers
  • store unstructured Data ( photos, files, …)
  • store objects in AWS S3
  • store objects using SDKs (GO, Javascripts, Java )

to start a server you can use the container image of MiniO available on Docker hub here :

mini0/minio

you can run this cmd :

docker pull minio/minio

to start the server run :

 docker run -p 9000:9000 minio/minio server /export

you can access the web UI at http://localhost:9000
