S3Proxy implements the S3 API and proxies requests, enabling several use cases:

Usage with Docker

Docker Hub hosts a Docker image and has instructions on how to run it.

Usage without Docker

Users can download releases from GitHub. Developers can build the project by running mvn package which produces a binary at target/s3proxy. S3Proxy requires Java 7 to run.

Configure S3Proxy via a properties file. An example using the local file system as the storage backend with anonymous access:


First create the filesystem basedir:

mkdir /tmp/s3proxy

Next run S3Proxy. Linux and Mac OS X users can run the executable jar:

chmod +x s3proxy
s3proxy --properties s3proxy.conf

Windows users must explicitly invoke java:

java -jar s3proxy --properties s3proxy.conf

Finally test by creating a bucket then listing all the buckets:

$ curl --request PUT http://localhost:8080/testbucket

$ curl http://localhost:8080/

Usage with Java

Maven Central hosts S3Proxy artifacts and the wiki has instructions on Java use.

Supported storage backends

See the wiki for examples of configurations.


S3Proxy can modify its behavior based on middlewares:


S3Proxy has broad compatibility with the S3 API, however, it does not support:

S3Proxy emulates the following operations:

S3Proxy has basic CORS preflight and actual request/response handling. It can be configured within the properties file (and corresponding ENV variables for Docker):

s3proxy.cors-allow-origins=https://example\.com https://.+\.example\.com https://example\.cloud
s3proxy.cors-allow-methods=GET PUT
s3proxy.cors-allow-headers=Accept Content-Type

CORS cannot be configured per bucket. s3proxy.cors-allow-all=true will accept any origin and header. Actual CORS requests are supported for GET, PUT and POST methods.

The wiki collects compatibility notes for specific storage backends.
