MinIO provides the best-in-class performance as we have repeatedly shown in our previous benchmarks. In those benchmarks, we chose the highest-end hardware and measured if MinIO could squeeze out every bit of the resources afforded it. This proved two key points: Ensuring that MinIO utilizes the maximum possible CPU, Network, and Storage available.Ensuring that MinIO is NOT the IO-bottleneck.
