MinIO Object Storage

By: MinIO Latest Version: v5.0.14

Product Overview

MinIO is a high performance, Kubernetes native object storage suite. With an extensive list of enterprise features, it is scalable, secure and resilient while remaining remarkably simple to deploy and operate at scale. Software-defined, MinIO can run on any infrastructure and in any cloud - public, private or edge. MinIO is the world's fastest object storage and can run the broadest set of workloads in the industry. It is widely considered to be the leader in compatibility with Amazon's S3 API.


With its focus on high performance, MinIO enables enterprises to support multiple use cases with the same platform. For example, MinIO's performance characteristics mean that you can run multiple Spark, Presto, and Hive queries, or to quickly test, train and deploy AI algorithms, without suffering a storage bottleneck. MinIO object storage is used as the primary storage for cloud native applications that require higher throughput and lower latency than traditional object storage can provide.

Kubernetes Native

MinIO was born into the cloud. Containerization and orchestration is our customer base's default implementation. Our focus on the cloud native way has resulted in an exceptionally clean Kubernetes implementation. As a result, MinIO can be found on every Kubernetes distribution from the public cloud to the private cloud.


MinIO employs the same techniques as the hyper-scalers using simplicity as a building block. By consuming resources in small, discrete chunks, MinIO customers additional instances and can pack them densely - up to exabyte scale. Cloud-native applications start small at the prototyping phase, but often grow to multiple racks and sometimes to multiple data centers spread across geographies. MinIO is designed to scale seamlessly alongside the application's demands.


MinIO is designed for the multi-tenancy world of Kubernetes. With MinIO, tenants are fully isolated from each other with their own instances of MinIO clusters. Each tenant in turn may have multiple users with varying levels of access privileges. Each tenant cluster operates independently of each other and due to the size of the MinIO binary (~60mb) can be densely packed for efficiency. Standard HTTP load balancers or round-robin DNS may be employed.


MinIO encrypts data when stored on disk and when transmitted over the network. MinIO's state-of-the-art encryption schemes support granular object-level encryption using modern, industry-standard encryption algorithms, such as AES-256-GCM, ChaCha20-Poly1305, and AES-CBC. MinIO is fully compatible with S3 encryption semantics, and also extends S3 by including support for non-AWS key management services such as Hashicorp Vault, Gemalto KeySecure, and Google Secrets Manager.
