An open source object storage solution

Object Lesson


MinIO is a powerful, open source object storage solution that offers a range of features and benefits for organizations looking to store and manage large amounts of unstructured data. MinIO's durability and redundancy features make it an excellent choice for backup and disaster recovery solutions. By storing backups as objects in MinIO, organizations can ensure data protection and quick recovery in case of hardware failures or other disasters. MinIO is also well-suited for media storage and streaming applications, such as video-on-demand platforms and content delivery networks. Its high-performance and scalable architecture can handle the storage and delivery of large media files with low latency.

Still, Amazon S3 is a great alternative if your workloads are already on AWS, you don't work with large datasets, or you would prefer not to deal with managing MinIO yourself. You need to remember that to achieve S3 availability, you will need to replicate data across multiple MinIO clusters around the world, so a careful cost-benefit analysis should come first.
