You can deploy a MinIO Tenant through the Operator Console.

The Operator Console automatically detects any MinIO Tenants deployed on the cluster, whether provisioned through the Operator Console or through the MinIO Kubernetes Plugin.

Select a listed tenant to open an in-browser view of that tenant’s MinIO Console. You can use this view to directly manage, modify, expand, upgrade, and delete the tenant through the Operator UI.
