Mount AWS S3 Bucket on Ubuntu using S3FS: Docker Image

Facing issues in mounting your S3 bucket on ubuntu? Try using this docker image!

I created the image which has S3FS and Fuse installed on it. It includes Oracle Java 8 too. You need to supply your S3 bucket name and credentials while running the docker image as below. Then you can further configure it as per your needs!

Looking forward to your feedback!

Run the command below to use this image:

docker pull ihealthtechnologies/s3-mount

docker run -it --rm --privileged -e AWS_ACCESS_KEY=?? -e AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=?? -e AWS_S3_BUCKET=yourBucket ihealthtechnologies/s3-mount /bin/bash

  1. Hi Matt,
    I was able to pull up the script below. You can add these scripts to your Dockerfile. Let me know if this works for you.

    # needed for s3-fuse
    lsb_release -a
    apt-get –force-yes update
    apt-get –force-yes install -y build-essential libfuse-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libxml2-dev mime-support automake libtool wget tar git unzip

    # jdk installation, optional.
    echo “deb trusty main” | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-java.list
    echo “deb-src trusty main” | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-java.list
    apt-key adv –keyserver hkp:// –recv-keys EEA14886
    apt-get –force-yes update
    echo oracle-java8-installer shared/accepted-oracle-license-v1-1 select true | sudo /usr/bin/debconf-set-selections
    apt-get install -y oracle-java8-installer
    apt-get install -y oracle-java8-set-default

    cd ~

    # This is optional, you might not need this.
    wget –no-check-certificate –no-cookies –header “Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie”
    rm -rf ~/UnlimitedJCEPolicyJDK8/
    unzip -d ~/
    mv -v ~/UnlimitedJCEPolicyJDK8/local_policy.jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/security/
    mv -v ~/UnlimitedJCEPolicyJDK8/US_export_policy.jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/security/

    # s3-fuse
    rm -rf /usr/src/s3fs-fuse
    git clone /usr/src/s3fs-fuse
    cd /usr/src/s3fs-fuse && ./ && ./configure && make && make install
    mkdir -p /mnt/s3
    echo $AWS_ACCESS_KEY:$AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY > /root/.passwd-s3fs
    chmod 600 /root/.passwd-s3fs

    echo “/usr/local/bin/s3fs $AWS_S3_BUCKET /mnt/s3” > /usr/local/

    # run /usr/local/ to mount S3 bucket.
