Using S3 without minio


I’m trying to set up S3 as a filesystem for my tutor installation on k8s. I’ve seen comments on this issue before but I don’t understand why I have to install another service like MinIO. Is there any way to use S3 directly without any third party service?

Hi @bilalunal! You don’t have to use MinIO to store assets on S3, it’s just that I did not develop an official S3 plugin for Tutor. @arbrandes and @fghaas have developed their own plugin, which is inspired from the minio plugin: GitHub - hastexo/tutor-s3 Maybe you can try it out?


Hi @regis thanks for your reply. I am trying to understand logic behind this process. As far as I know when you upload from a file from studio this file goes to mongo db and I can reach this file via mongo later.

Does minio or s3 add-on replace this logic and write uploaded files to s3 bucket instead of local filesystem or did I misunderstood logic here.
