For starters, MinIO has a good user interface. You can access it through the browser and perform operations like creating the object.

MinIO can work with attributes and folders, and it has the ability to use a stream approach for files. I have moments that should work exclusively. It also has some management features you can use, like exclusive locks that you can perform on one record or a collection.

The features that I have found most valuable with MinIO is its coding bit rot protection and how it distributes the workload over all the servers.

The ability to spawn a MinIO Tenant on demand and shut it down right after is most valuable.

The Distributed User Interface (DUI) needs some work. It's hard to view a large set of data on the DUI. It's an issue with the DUI's performance.

MinIO has behaved strangely in the past. For instance, the application dropped connection to MinIO. It's not too significant, but it loses connection. We're trying to understand exactly what is happening when this happens.

The only downside I see is that you do not have a complete picture of an object.

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.
