Full Description

Minio Quickstart Guide

Minio is an object storage server released under Apache License v2.0. It is compatible with Amazon S3 cloud storage service. It is best suited for storing unstructured data such as photos, videos, log files, backups and container / VM images. Size of an object can range from a few KBs to a maximum of 5TB.

Minio server is light enough to be bundled with the application stack, similar to NodeJS, Redis and MySQL.

Docker Container


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


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

Great news! Thanks so much.

We won't be removing the tags anymore, we had to remove because there was breaking change to the docker image.

We will make sure in future this won't happen @wrsenn

Great tool, I've been using it as the S3 server for a docker-compose project.

Can you please keep tags around longer (and preferably match them in some way to your releases in Git)? A tag I was relying upon was removed, and the newer version of the Minio container required us to change our composition unexpectedly.

@raulsalamanca you can build mc outside of Minio.

CGO_ENABLED=0 go get -u

This will build a statically compiled binary.
