Overview

Dell EMC Elactic Cloud Storage (ECS) provides a complete software-defined object storage platform designed for today's cloud-scale storage requirements. ECS provides the simplicity and low cost benefits of the public cloud without the risk, compliance, and data sovereignty concerns. ECS benefits include:

  • Cloud-scale Economics: 60% TCO savings versus public cloud services.
  • Simplicity & Scale: Single global namespace, unlimited apps, users and files.
  • Universal Accessibility: Support for object, file, and HDFS all on a single platform.
  • Faster App Development: API accessible storage and strong consistency accelerates cloud apps & analytics.
  • Turnkey Cloud: Multi-tenancy, self-service access and metering capabilities.

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.
