MinIO offers high-performance, S3 compatible object storage.
Native to Kubernetes, MinIO is the only object storage suite available on
every public cloud, every Kubernetes distribution, the private cloud and the
edge. MinIO is software-defined and is 100% open source under GNU AGPL v3.
Multi-cloud object storage allows enterprises to build AWS S3 compatible data infrastructure on any cloud.
The result is a consistent, portable interface to your data and applications - meaning you can run anywhere,
from the edge to the public cloud without changing a line of code.
From the Fortune 100 to emerging startups, MinIO serves as a foundational component of the cloud-operating model.
Open Source powers the cloud. Open Source powers the enterprise. Open Source powers MinIO.
Tens of thousands of customers and community members trust MinIO every day to deliver security,
resiliency, durability and operational excellence across their deployments.
Active Active, Multi-Site Replication for Object Storage is a key requirement for mission-critical production environments. MinIO is the only vendor that offers it today. MinIO offers bucket-level granularity and supports both synchronous and near-synchronous replication depending on the architectural choices and rate of change with the data.Learn more about Active Active Replication
MinIO IAM is built with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) compatibility at its core and presents that framework to applications and users no matter the environment - providing the same functionality across varying public clouds, private clouds and the edge. MinIO extends AWS IAM compatibility with support for popular external identity providers such as ActiveDirectory/LDAP, Okta and Keycloak, allowing administrators to offload identity management to their organization’s preferred SSO solution.Learn more about Identity & Access Management
In the world of object storage, strong encryption is required just to get a seat at the table. MinIO delivers more with the highest level of encryption alongside extensive optimizations that all but eliminate the overhead typically associated with storage encryption operations.Learn more about Encryption
Protecting data from deletion (accidental or intentional) is a key compliance component that touches every industry. MinIO supports a complete range of functionality including object locking, retention, legal holds, governance, and compliance. MinIO’s bucks and object imutability is Veeam certified and validated by Cohasset Partners for use under SEC Rule 17a-4(f), FINRA Rule 4511, and CFTC Regulation 1.31.Learn more about Bucket & Object Immutability
Object-level versioning is a significant evolution compared to SAN and NAS versioning approaches. Not only does versioning provide data protection, it also serves as the foundation for powerful features like Object Locking, Immutability, Tiering and Life Cycle management.
With MinIO, objects are independently versioned following Amazon’s S3 structure/implementation. MinIO assigns a unique ID to each version of a given object - applications can specify a version ID at any time to access the point-in-time snapshot of that object.Learn more about Bucket & Object Versioning
As data continues to grow, the ability to co-optimize for access, security and economics becomes a hard requirement, not a nice-to-have. This is the role of lifecycle data management. MinIO offers a unique suite of features to protect data within and across clouds - both public and private.
MinIO’s enterprise data lifecycle management tools, including versioning, object locking and the various derivative components, satisfy many use cases.Learn more about Data Life Cycle Management & Tiering
Data is the enterprise’s most critical asset and must therefore be made easily and securely available throughout the entire organization in order to maximize its value to everyone. As a result, enterprises must adopt a range of data interface approaches based on the needs of the audience. MinIO offers a suite of options to cover every persona in a data-driven enterprise, such as graphical user interfaces (GUI), command line interfaces (CLI) and application programming interfaces (API). MinIO’s data management interfaces function interchangeably to deliver granular, performant and scalable object storage management.Learn more about Automated Data Management Interfaces
Metrics and logging are critical when tracking the health and performance of any system. MinIO provides complete visibility into clusters with detailed storage performance monitoring, metrics, and per-operation logging. The result is a robust, transparent and performant answer to object storage monitoring, alerting and observability.Learn more about Monitoring
Scaling is a dimensional concept but it has one truth: simplicity scales. MinIO scales horizontally (scale out) through a concept called Server Pools. Server pools are an approach that combines multiple technology components. Each server pool is an independent set of nodes with their own compute, network and storage resources.Learn more about Scalability
S3 compatibility is a hard requirement for cloud-native applications. MinIO is unyielding in its adherence to the API and with tens of thousands of users - both commercial and community - MinIO’s S3 implementation is the most widely tested and implemented alternative to AWS S3 in the world.
One of the earliest adopters of the S3 API (both V2 and V4) and one of the only storage companies to focus exclusively on S3, MinIO’s massive community ensures that no other AWS alternative is more compatible. MinIO is also one of the few companies to support S3 Select.Learn more about AWS S3 Compatibility
