We performed a comparison between MinIO and Red Hat Ceph Storage based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two File and Object Storage solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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."
"It performs efficiently compared to other solutions."
"The most valuable feature of MinIO is its ease of use, replication, and active directory. All the capabilities are in this solution."
"Nice web interface, easy to use, with a low memory footprint."
"The product does save time for our company."
"Saves a lot of time in generating and managing documents."
"Reliable erasure coding."
"The initial setup was straightforward as MinIO provided good support documentation and took a couple of days to complete."
"I like the distributed and self-healing nature of the product."
"Most of the features are beneficial and one does not stand out above the rest."
"The solution is pretty stable."
"We have not encountered any stability issues for the product."
"We use the solution for cloud storage."
"Red Hat Ceph Storage is a reliable solution, it works well."
"It's a very performance-intensive, brilliant storage system, and I always recommend it to customers based on its benefits, performance, and scalability."
"The most valuable feature is the stability of the product."
"The scalability is one of the limitations we have found. We are looking for another solution but they must provide the same characteristics, such as an affordable price and continuity."
"The product's initial setup phase is complex."
"Its reverse proxy features could be better."
"Limited storage provided in the free version."
"There is a lack of good addons to integrate without having to use third-party applications."
"The documentation of the solution should improve."
"The developer support could be better."
"The tool’s pricing needs to improve. We also encountered challenges while deploying the tool in Kubernetes. The documentation also was not too great. We have currently deployed the solution in a stand-alone fashion."
"It takes some time to re-balance the storage in case of server failure."
"If you use for any other solution like other Kubernetes solutions, it's not very suitable."
"We have encountered slight integration issues."
"It would be nice to have a notification feature whenever an important action is completed."
"It took me a long time to get the storage drivers for the communication with Kubernetes up and running. The documentation could improve it is lacking information. I'm not sure if this is a Ceph problem or if Ceph should address this, but it was something I ran into. Additionally, there is a performance issue I am having that I am looking into, but overall I am satisfied with the performance."
"The product lacks RDMA support for inter-OSD communication."
"What could be improved in Red Hat Ceph Storage is its user interface or GUI."
"The storage capacity of the solution can be improved."

Reviews from Real Users
MinIO stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Several major ones are its flexibility, integration options, and performance.
Süleyman Fazıl Y., a senior software engineer at a tech services company, writes, “The most valuable features are that MinIO is open, it works on-premise, and is compatible with the Amazon industry which is great for finding compatible libraries in many languages which is very good for developers.”
Rebecca S., CTO at NIASE, says, “MinIO is much improved over the prior solution, updates are simple to apply, and we anticipate that future capacity requirements will be easier to meet. Our customers are using this solution to retrieve tens of thousands of objects (documents and files) per hour, and MinIO seems to be able to keep up with it.”
