We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is very durable and that is particularly important."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of management and administration."
"The ability to spawn a MinIO Tenant on demand and shut it down right after is most valuable."
"Good interface and a good approach to development and testing environments."
"Very good at object retrieval."
"It is a cloud-based environment and at times, it is not very simple to use."
"The monitoring capability is really bad and needs to be improved."
"There should be the ability to expand the size after it has already been deployed. Currently, you cannot do that. It doesn't support an increase in size. Each time we spawn a new MinIO, we need to track the particular MinIO instance or tenant that has the file. Therefore, we had to create a multi-tenant solution that tracks the MinIO that has our artifacts. It isn't in one single instance. It should have better multi-tenancy support."
"Documentation could be improved."
"The solution lacks documentation."
"Our fees are approximately half a dollar per gigabyte."
"This is an open-source solution but I am using the licensed version."

Cloudian HyperStore lets you start small and grow to hundreds of petabytes on-premises simply by adding nodes. Leverage the proven interoperability of the industry’s only 100% native S3 API.
MinIO is a high performance, distributed object storage system. It is software-defined, runs on industry standard hardware and is 100% open source under the Apache V2 license.
MinIO is different in that it was designed from its inception to be the standard in private cloud object storage. Because MinIO is purpose-built to serve only objects, a single-layer architecture achieves all of the necessary functionality without compromise. The result is a cloud-native object server that is simultaneously performant, scalable and lightweight.
While MinIO excels at traditional object storage use cases like secondary storage, disaster recovery and archiving, it is unique at overcoming the private cloud challenges associated with machine learning, analytics and cloud-native application workloads.
