Kubernetes Native, High Performance Object Storage

MinIO's high-performance object storage suite is software defined and enables customers to build cloud-native data infrastructure for machine learning, analytics and application data workloads.

MinIO object storage is fundamentally different. Designed for performance and the S3 API, it is 100% open-source. MinIO is ideal for large, private cloud environments with stringent security requirements and delivers mission-critical availability across a diverse range of workloads.

MinIO is pioneering high performance object storage.

MinIO is the world's fastest object storage server. With READ/WRITE speeds of 183 GB/s and 171 GB/s on standard hardware, object storage can operate as the primary storage tier for a diverse set of workloads ranging from Spark, Presto, TensorFlow, H2O.ai as well as a replacement for Hadoop HDFS.

High Performance

Built on the principles of web scale.

MinIO leverages the hard won knowledge of the web scalers to bring a simple scaling model to object storage. At MinIO, scaling starts with a single cluster which can be federated with other MinIO clusters to create a global namespace, spanning multiple data centers if needed. It is one of the reasons that more than half the Fortune 500 runs MinIO.


Born cloud native.

MinIO was built from scratch in the last four years and is native to the technologies and architectures that define the cloud. These include containerization, orchestration with Kubernetes, microservices and multi-tenancy. No other object store is more Kubernetes-friendly.

Cloud Native

The #1 open source object store. And the most enterprise ready.

MinIO is 100% open source under the Apache V2 license and Affero General Public License Version 3 (AGPLv3). This means that MinIO’s customers are free from lock in, free to inspect, free to innovate, free to modify and free to redistribute. The diversity of its deployments have hardened the software in ways that proprietary software can never offer.

Open Source S3 + Enterprise Grade

The defacto standard for Amazon S3 compatibility.

Amazon’s S3 API is the defacto standard in the object storage world. MinIO is the defacto standard for S3 compatibility and was one of the first to adopt the API and the first to add support for S3 Select. More than 750 organizations, including Microsoft Azure, use MinIO’s S3 Gateway - more than the rest of the industry combined.

Amazon S3 Compatibility

Simply powerful.

Minimalism is a guiding design principle at MinIO. Simplicity reduces opportunities for errors, improves uptime, delivers reliability while serving as the foundation for performance. MinIO can be installed and configured within minutes. The amount of configuration options and variations are kept to a minimum which results in near-zero system administration tasks and fewer paths to failures.
