The Minio project is inspired by Amazon’s S3 for its API and Facebook’s Haystack for its immutable data structure.
You can track, check-out and even contribute to the project here at their GitHub. Like Hadoop, expensive RAID controllers are not needed. Instead they are using Rubberband Erasure Coding to dynamically protect the data.
Simplification of installation, configuration, updates and management are some of the key features. All being developed by seasoned storage veterans.
Object based storage is quickly becoming a much sought after solution in many IT organizations. Minio is definitely something to keep an eye on!
