Reference Hardware

MinIO is software-defined in the way the term was meant. Our software runs on virtually any hardware configuration, providing true price/performance design flexibility to our customers.

MinIO's Recommended Configuration

MinIO is hardware agnostic and runs on a variety of hardware architectures ranging from ARM-based embedded systems to high-end x64 and POWER9 servers. However, for a large scale data storage infrastructure, we recommend the following server configurations in high-density and high-capacity flavors.
Minimum Recommended Configuration
Processor
Processor
Dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable GoId CPUs (minimum 8 cores per socket).
Drives
Drives
SATA/SAS HDDs for high-density and NVMe SSDs for high-performance (minimum of 8 drives per server).
Network
Network
25GbE for high-density and 100GbE NICs for high-performance.
Memory
Memory
128GB RAM
(Note: Object storage operations are primarily throughput bound. So MinIO takes full advantage of the modern hardware improvements such as AVX-512 SIMD acceleration, 100GbE networking, and NVMe SSDs when available.)
