Use cases

MinIO is a lifesaver if you are in one of those situations:

  • You have a software that requires an S3 bucket but you have to deploy it in a specific cloud provider or on-premise
  • You need an S3 bucket with very low latency, MinIO can achieve 10x lower latencies than an S3 bucket
  • You need buckets for dev/staging/pre-prod quickly and for cheap
  • You need a Web UI to manage your buckets / Users / Policies / Replication without calling an API (but you can also do it with the API)
  • You need an off-site backup for disaster recovery needs
