What is MinIO?

MinIO is a high-performance, open-source object storage system designed for large-scale data storage and retrieval. It boasts several key features:

  • S3 Compatibility: MinIO is API-compatible with Amazon S3, making it easy to migrate existing applications and workflows to its platform. This compatibility also opens doors to a vast ecosystem of S3-compatible tools and services.
  • High Performance: MinIO is built for speed and scalability, capable of handling massive datasets with impressive throughput and low latency. Benchmarks indicate it can reach speeds exceeding 325 GiB/sec for reads and 165 GiB/sec for writes under optimal conditions.
  • Multi-Cloud Deployment: MinIO can be deployed on various platforms, including public clouds, private clouds, bare-metal servers, and edge infrastructure. This flexibility gives you control over your data and avoids vendor lock-in.
  • Enterprise Features: MinIO caters to enterprise needs with features like encryption, erasure coding, bitrot protection, identity management, and continuous replication. These features ensure the security, integrity, and availability of your data.
  • Open Source: MinIO is licensed under the GNU Affero General Public License v3.0, allowing for free use and modification of the software. This open-source nature also fosters a vibrant community and continual development.
  • Kubernetes Native: MinIO integrates seamlessly with Kubernetes, making it ideal for cloud-native deployments and containerized workloads.


What is StarRocks?

StarRocks is a next-generation, blazing-fast massively parallel processing (MPP) database designed to make real-time analytics easy for enterprises. It is built to power sub-second queries at scale.   In the shard-data architecture, StarRocks can read and write data stored in S3 compatible object stores.


StarRocks + MinIO = Data Warehouse with elastic compute and storage


Technical Benefits

  • Flexible scaling: Scale compute resources independently of storage based on workload demands. Pay only for what you use, avoiding over-provisioning of compute power during low-activity periods.
  • Storage efficiency: Store data only once and access it from multiple compute nodes, eliminating redundancy and maximizing storage utilization.
  • Enhanced data protection: Implement security measures like encryption and access controls at the storage layer, independent of specific compute environments.
  • Performance: MinIO has faster performance than AWS S3, GCP GCS and Azure Blob Storage.
