Running MinIO using Docker Desktop in 5 Minutes

MinIO is an open-source distributed object storage server written in Go, designed for Private Cloud infrastructure providing S3 storage functionality. It is a high-performance object storage solution that provides an Amazon Web Services S3-compatible API and supports all core S3 features.

MinIO is built to deploy anywhere – public or private cloud, bare-metal infrastructure, orchestrated environments, and edge infrastructure.

Running MinIO using Docker container

MinIO can be setup using a single-liner command:

docker run -p 9000:9000 -p 9001:9001 minio/minio server /data --console-address ":9001"

Installing MinIO Client

The MinIO Client mc command line tool provides a modern alternative to UNIX commands like ls, cat, cp, mirror, and diff with support for both filesystems and Amazon S3-compatible cloud storage services. The mc commandline tool is built for compatibility with the AWS S3 API and is tested MinIO and AWS S3 for expected functionality and behavior.
