Hey @root 

MinIO is not listed under the supported S3 Compatible cloud storage vendors from our documentation:
https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/9237_supported_cloud_storage_s3_compatible_object_storage_vendors.html

 

However there are steps available to them to become certified here:
https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/9242_verifying_cloud_storage_product_compatibility_with_commvault.html

 

Cheers,

Is there a way to backup minio into CV?  The only client setup I see is Amazon S3.

@Simon R Smith , to confirm, you’re referring to backing up the date in your MinIO storage into commvault’s storage?

I don’t see any agent listed (and I checked our newest docs version).

There might be a manner via MinIO to run a script as a Pre-Scan process to present the cloud in a manner that our File system agent can see it.

Might be worth asking MinIO support what they suggest.

@Mike Struening , yes, that's right.   Good idea.  I’ll hit up Minio support.  If I get anything from them, I’ll update the thread.

We found this https://www.commvault.com/supported-technologies

When I click on “Cloud/Object-based Storage”, I get the following list:

Commvault supports the following S3-compatible Object Storage as a data protection target:

From this, how would I add minio as a data protection target ?

Hey @Simon R Smith 

Good catch. I’ve raised a query with engineering and asked for clarification.

Once i hear back, I’ll post back here. It may be a little while though, so if you raise a support incident we can track closely there and perhaps get a response a little sooner.

Hi @Simon R Smith 

Have confirmed with engineering team that documentation will be updated to reflect Mino as ‘Compatible’, however not as certified.

This is because we know it works based on a few observations:

  • Many cusotmers are already using it.
  • The five major hardware vendors are already supporting MinIO in their S3 object storage solution  
    • Nutanix Buckets, Qumulo, VMware K8 Pods, Seagate LyveCloud are using MinIO underneath, and we certified these.

I can see that the draft documentation update has been updated and expect that the public facing documentation will be updated within the next few weeks.

 

Cheers,

Jase
