We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the ease of management and administration."
"I think it's the economic factor. This solution has the lowest cost for storage systems."
"This is an open-source solution but I am using the licensed version."
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.
