We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The cost was the main reason we chose to use this solution."

More Cloudian HyperStore Pros →

"Good interface and a good approach to development and testing environments.""The solution has good compatibility with different kinds of storage.""The stability of MinIO is good.""Very good at object retrieval.""Nice web interface, easy to use, with a low memory footprint.""The features that I have found most valuable with MinIO is its coding bit rot protection and how it distributes the workload over all the servers.""The container installation features are good. The S3 feature provisions the storage buckets making it easy. It allows me to spin up the public buckets with open-source technology.""For starters, MinIO has a good user interface. You can access it through the browser and perform operations like creating the object."

More MinIO Pros →

"As it is an S3 solution with the same protocol as the one we have with AWS, having better integration with AWS will be beneficial."

More Cloudian HyperStore Cons →

"The Distributed User Interface (DUI) needs some work. It's hard to view a large set of data on the DUI. It's an issue with the DUI's performance.""There should be the ability to expand the size after it has already been deployed. Currently, you cannot do that. It doesn't support an increase in size. Each time we spawn a new MinIO, we need to track the particular MinIO instance or tenant that has the file. Therefore, we had to create a multi-tenant solution that tracks the MinIO that has our artifacts. It isn't in one single instance. It should have better multi-tenancy support.""With problems, visibility is hard because everything is in containers. Difficult to get to the logs in order to figure out what the problem was.""MinIO could use a time patch on it. It could also use better documentation for some languages like Python.""Documentation could be improved.""The solution lacks documentation.""MinIO has behaved strangely in the past. For instance, the application dropped connection to MinIO. It's not too significant, but it loses connection. We're trying to understand exactly what is happening when this happens.""Limited storage provided in the free version."

    Cloudian HyperStore lets you start small and grow to hundreds of petabytes on-premises simply by adding nodes. Leverage the proven interoperability of the industry’s only 100% native S3 API.

    MinIO is a high performance, distributed object storage system. It is software-defined, runs on industry standard hardware and is 100% open source under the Apache V2 license.

    MinIO is different in that it was designed from its inception to be the standard in private cloud object storage. Because MinIO is purpose-built to serve only objects, a single-layer architecture achieves all of the necessary functionality without compromise. The result is a cloud-native object server that is simultaneously performant, scalable and lightweight.

    While MinIO excels at traditional object storage use cases like secondary storage, disaster recovery and archiving, it is unique at overcoming the private cloud challenges associated with machine learning, analytics and cloud-native application workloads.
