Garage is an S3-compatible distributed object storage service designed specifically for self-hosting at a small-to-medium scale. Developed by Deuxfleurs, Garage aims to provide a storage solution that is both lightweight and easy to operate, while maintaining high resilience to machine failures.

Key Features

Distributed Object Storage

Garage is built to support storage clusters composed of nodes running at different physical locations. This design enables it to provide a storage service that can replicate data across these different locations, ensuring availability even when some servers are unreachable.


Garage is optimized for self-hosting, making it an ideal solution for small to medium-scale storage needs. It is designed to be easy to set up and manage, allowing users to maintain control over their data without relying on external cloud providers.

High Resilience

One of the core strengths of Garage is its resilience. It is engineered to handle machine failures gracefully, ensuring that data remains accessible and intact even in the event of hardware issues.

Lightweight and Easy to Operate

Garage focuses on being lightweight, minimizing the resources required to run it effectively. Its simplicity in operation means that even users with limited technical expertise can deploy and manage their own storage clusters.

Documentation and Resources

Garage offers comprehensive documentation to help users get started and make the most of its features. Key resources include:

  • Website and Documentation: The central hub for all information related to Garage, including detailed documentation and guides.
  • Binary Releases: Access the latest binary releases of Garage for easy deployment.
  • Git Repository: The source code repository for Garage, available for users who want to explore or contribute to the project.

Goals and Use Cases

Garage was designed with specific goals and use cases in mind:

  • Decentralized Storage: Providing a robust storage solution that can operate across multiple physical locations.
  • High Availability: Ensuring data remains accessible even when part of the storage cluster is offline.
  • Ease of Use: Making it simple to deploy and manage storage clusters without requiring extensive technical knowledge.
  • Resilience: Building a system that can withstand and recover from hardware failures.
