S3 gateway to EOS

Dear all,

We are looking for a solution to provide an S3 gateway service to files on EOS. In the past MinIO was the recommended solution for this. But more than a year ago the gateway functionality of MinIO has been removed from the current releases, and the older releases with that function are not maintained any more.

Is anybody using successfully a different solution for this gateway functionality? The only software that we identified in doing just that seems to be s3proxy, but this looks like a one-man project with uncertain future.

Is the CERN EOS development team considering the development of a new S3 interface to EOS in the long term?


Hi Armin,
we have currently one in the team working on exactly this. Should arrive in first half of 2024.

Cheers Andreas.
