SUBNET, Engineering Creativity, and You

SUBNET, Engineering Creativity, and You

When we started MinIO, we set out to set a new standard for object storage. We built a software-defined, S3 API compatible object storage that is the fastest and most scalable solution available that isn’t S3. But we didn’t stop there. We are also crafting an entirely different experience through our SUBNET experience. SUBNET combines a commercial license

The Architect’s Guide to Thinking About the Hybrid/Multi Cloud

The Architect’s Guide to Thinking About the Hybrid/Multi Cloud

We were recently asked by a journalist to help frame the challenges and complexity of the hybrid cloud for technology leaders. While we suspect many technologists have given this a fair amount of thought, we also know from first-hand discussions with customers and community members that this is still an area of significant inquiry.

Multi-Site Active-Active Replication

Multi-Site Active-Active Replication

Synchronizing data between multiple data centers is a core competency of any object storage service. MinIO already checked this box with its performance optimized Server-Side Active-Active Bucket Replication [https://blog.min.io/active-active-replication/]. Initially, MinIO only recommended two MinIO deployments. Active-Active replication supports scenarios such as: * Same-DC Replication * Cross-DC Replication * Same-Region Replication * Cross-Region Replication Active-Active replication

Kubernetes, Consistency and Commoditization - The Way of the Cloud

Kubernetes, Consistency and Commoditization - The Way of the Cloud

When you think about the cloud, it helps to think about the types of businesses that have been built with elastic compute, networking and storage as a foundational component and self-service/multi-tenancy as the vehicle for customer engagement. For the most part, those businesses succeeded at scaling by focusing their efforts on building their product, almost exclusively on a single

Five Years in the Making

Five Years in the Making

Today marks a special anniversary for MinIO. It has been five years since we had our first GA release on GitHub [https://github.com/minio/minio/releases/tag/RELEASE.2016-03-11T03-45-50Z]. The journey to that point and from that point (5,396 commits later) has been nothing short of amazing and we wanted to take a quick moment to recap our
