Standalone Deployment

To host multiple tenants on a single machine, run one Minio server per tenant with dedicated HTTPS port, config and data directory.

Example 1 : Single host, single drive

This example hosts 3 tenants on a single drive.

minio --config-dir ~/tenant1 server --address :9001 /data/tenant1
minio --config-dir ~/tenant2 server --address :9002 /data/tenant2
minio --config-dir ~/tenant3 server --address :9003 /data/tenant3

Example-1

Example 2 : Single host, multiple drives (erasure code)

This example hosts 3 tenants on multiple drives.

minio --config-dir ~/tenant1 server --address :9001 /disk1/data/tenant1 /disk2/data/tenant1 /disk3/data/tenant1 /disk4/data/tenant1
minio --config-dir ~/tenant2 server --address :9002 /disk1/data/tenant2 /disk2/data/tenant2 /disk3/data/tenant2 /disk4/data/tenant2
minio --config-dir ~/tenant3 server --address :9003 /disk1/data/tenant3 /disk2/data/tenant3 /disk3/data/tenant3 /disk4/data/tenant3

Distributed Deployment

To host multiple tenants in a distributed environment, run several distributed Minio instances concurrently.

Example 1 : Multiple host, multiple drives (erasure code)

This example hosts 3 tenants on a 4 node distributed setup. Execute the following command on all the four nodes.

export MINIO_ACCESS_KEY=<TENANT1_ACCESS_KEY>
export MINIO_SECRET_KEY=<TENANT1_SECRET_KEY>
minio --config-dir ~/tenant1 server --address :9001 http://192.168.10.11/data/tenant1 http://192.168.10.12/data/tenant1 http://192.168.10.13/data/tenant1 http://192.168.10.14/data/tenant1

export MINIO_ACCESS_KEY=<TENANT2_ACCESS_KEY>
export MINIO_SECRET_KEY=<TENANT2_SECRET_KEY>
minio --config-dir ~/tenant2 server --address :9002 http://192.168.10.11/data/tenant2 http://192.168.10.12/data/tenant2 http://192.168.10.13/data/tenant2 http://192.168.10.14/data/tenant2

export MINIO_ACCESS_KEY=<TENANT3_ACCESS_KEY>
export MINIO_SECRET_KEY=<TENANT3_SECRET_KEY>
minio --config-dir ~/tenant3 server --address :9003 http://192.168.10.11/data/tenant3 http://192.168.10.12/data/tenant3 http://192.168.10.13/data/tenant3 http://192.168.10.14/data/tenant3

Cloud Scale Deployment

For large scale multi-tenant Minio deployments, we recommend using one of the popular container orchestration platforms, e.g. Kubernetes, DC/OS or Docker Swarm. Refer this document to get started with Minio on orchestration platforms.
