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 capacity and performance flavors.
MinIO Minimum Requirements
Single Socket Intel® Xeon® Scalable GoId CPUs (minimum 16 cores
SATA/SAS HDDs for capacity and NVMe SSDs for high-performance
(minimum of 8 drives per server).
25GbE for capacity and 100GbE NICs for high-performance.
(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
