Data resiliency for everyone

Garage is an open-source distributed storage service you can self-host to fullfill many needs:

Garage implements the Amazon S3 API and thus is already compatible with many applications:

Garage is already compatible with Nextcloud, Mastodon, Matrix Synapse, Cyberduck, RClone and Peertube

Garage provides data resiliency by replicating data 3x over distant servers:

An example deployment on a map with servers in 5 zones: UK, France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland. Each chunk of data is replicated in 3 of these 5 zones.

Keeping requirements low

We worked hard to keep requirements as low as possible as we target the largest possible public.

  • CPU: any x86_64 CPU from the last 10 years, ARMv7 or ARMv8.
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Disk Space: at least 16GB
  • Network: 200ms or less, 50 Mbps or more
  • Heterogeneous hardware: build a cluster with whatever second-hand machines are available

For the network, as we do not use consensus algorithms like Paxos or Raft, Garage is not as latency sensitive. Thanks to Rust and its zero-cost abstractions, we keep CPU and memory low.

Built on the shoulder of giants
