Overview

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.

Nutanix Files (Files) enables you to share files across user work stations or VMs in a centralized protected location to eliminate the requirement for a third-party file server. Files uses a scale-out architecture that provides Server Message Block (SMB) file services to Windows clients for home share and user profiles. Files consists of three or more file server VMs (FSVM) or also known as a Files cluster. Files supports multiple file server clusters creation.
