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. Initially, MinIO only recommended two MinIO deployments. Active-Active replication supports scenarios such as: Same-DC ReplicationCross-DC ReplicationSame-Region ReplicationCross-Region ReplicationActive-Active replication is a key tool for organizations looking for multi-primary topologies, fast hot-hot failover,
