We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.
Why use StackPath Object Storage?
Frequent (hot) storage shouldn’t cost a lot. And once you’re paying for storage, we don’t believe you should pay AGAIN to access it. Welcome to StackPath’s Object Storage.
50% cheaper than Amazon S3 or similar cloud storage providers.
No Data Transfer Fees
No charges for data transfer (egress) or API requests/calls.
Better performance than cloud storage providers, even more so once paired with StackPath’s CDN or Edge Computing.
StackPath’s system architecture enables an average 6x faster performance relative to Cloud Storage Providers*. Especially when paired with our CDN or Edge Compute, this performance advantage means significantly faster time-to-first-byte speeds.
100% AWS S3 bit-compatible (same AWS API constructs for storage & identity management). No need to change your S3-compatible application.
Average time-to-first-byte (TTFB) performance of less than 15 ms; made even faster when paired with our CDN. This is significantly lower than others’ TTFB.
Immediate Read Capability
When you write an object to our buckets, it can be read immediately after. This is not always the case with Amazon S3 — a well-known issue for AWS developers.
