MinIO NAS Gateway
MinIO Gateway adds Amazon S3 compatibility to NAS storage. You may run multiple minio instances on the same shared NAS volume as a distributed object gateway.
Run MinIO Gateway for NAS Storage
Please ensure to replace
/shared/nasvol with actual mount path.
docker run -p 9000:9000 --name nas-s3 \ -e "MINIO_ROOT_USER=minio" \ -e "MINIO_ROOT_PASSWORD=minio123" \ -v /shared/nasvol:/container/vol \ minio/minio gateway nas /container/vol
export MINIO_ROOT_USER=minio export MINIO_ROOT_PASSWORD=minio123 minio gateway nas /shared/nasvol
Test using MinIO Browser
MinIO Gateway comes with an embedded web based object browser. Point your web browser to http://127.0.0.1:9000 to ensure that your server has started successfully.
Test using MinIO Client
mc provides a modern alternative to UNIX commands such as ls, cat, cp, mirror, diff etc. It supports filesystems and Amazon S3 compatible cloud storage services.
mc alias set mynas http://gateway-ip:9000 access_key secret_key
List buckets on nas
mc ls mynas [2017-02-22 01:50:43 PST] 0B ferenginar/ [2017-02-26 21:43:51 PST] 0B my-bucket/ [2017-02-26 22:10:11 PST] 0B test-bucket1/
There will be a breaking change after the release version 'RELEASE.2020-06-22T03-12-50Z'.
The file-based config settings are deprecated in NAS
The support for admin config APIs will be removed. This will include getters and setters like
mc admin config get and
mc admin config and any other
mc admin config options. The reason for this change is to avoid un-necessary reloads of the config from the disk. And to comply with the Environment variable based settings like other gateways.
The users who have been using the older config approach should migrate to ENV settings by setting environment variables accordingly.
Consider the following webhook target config.
notify_webhook:1 endpoint=http://localhost:8080/ auth_token= queue_limit=0 queue_dir=/tmp/webhk client_cert= client_key=
The corresponding environment variable setting can be
export MINIO_NOTIFY_WEBHOOK_ENABLE_1=on export MINIO_NOTIFY_WEBHOOK_ENDPOINT_1=http://localhost:8080/ export MINIO_NOTIFY_WEBHOOK_QUEUE_DIR_1=/tmp/webhk
NOTE: Please check the docs for the corresponding ENV setting. Alternatively, We can obtain other ENVs in the form
mc admin config set alias/ <sub-sys> --env
NAS gateway implementation allows symlinks on regular files,
- For reads symlink resolves to file symlink points to.
- For deletes
- Delete of symlink deletes the symlink but not the real file to which the symlink points.
- Delete of actual file automatically makes symlink'ed file invisible, dangling symlinks won't be visible.
- Disallows follow of directory symlinks to avoid security issues, and leaving them as is on namespace makes them very inconsistent.
- Dangling symlinks are ignored automatically.
Directory symlinks is not and will not be supported as there are no safe ways to handle them.
