MinIO: Amazon S3 competition

Premium Storage

Conclusions

MinIO is a powerful solution for a local object store with an S3-compatible interface. In terms of features, the solution is cutting edge: Constant consistency checks in the background, encryption of stored data at rest, and erasure coding for more efficient use of disk space are functions you would expect from a state-of-the-art storage solution. Because the product is available free of charge under an open source license, it can also be tested and used as part of proof-of-concept installations. If you want commercial support, you can get the appropriate license – but do expect to pay quite a serious amount of money for it.
