Access data using native S3 clients

The data files are also available using S3-compatible clients, such as the MinIO CLI utility or the AWS CLI tools . There are many more clients and SDKs for various programming languages like Python's Boto3.

The example below uses the MinIO client `mc mirror` command to show how easy it is to download a data set.

$ # Create an alias called "des-data" with anonymous access
$ mc alias set des-data anonymous

$ # Use the "mc mirror" command to copy a data set, in this case from the release called "y3-lt-widebinaries"
$ mc mirror \
