We are delighted to make our high-performance object storage available on the VMware Cloud Marketplace. This step builds upon our prior work with Pivotal and positions us to expand our relationship with VMware in the coming quarters as they continue their investment in Kubernetes.
PALO ALTO, Calif. (PRWEB) May 19, 2020
MinIO, a pioneer in high-performance object storage, today announced MinIO for VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition is available on VMware Cloud Marketplace.
VMware Cloud Marketplace enables customers to discover and deploy validated, third-party solutions for VMware-based platforms – across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. Once validated, partners can easily publish their solutions for VMware customers across platforms. Customers will be able to access these third-party partner solutions directly from their cloud environments, while also being able to experience the convenience of features such as notifications, reporting, and analytics.
MinIO for Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition (TKGI) provides a Helm Chart to deploy and manage the MinIO Object Storage suite as a native Kubernetes Operator on TKGI. Designed expressly for the private cloud, MinIO scales seamlessly while offering best-in-class resiliency through its high performance, object-level, erasure coding distribution. The solution offers full Amazon S3 API compatibility with sophisticated Role Based Access Control (RBAC), Object Locking (WORM) and server-side encryption at the object-level. MinIO’s Lambda compute notification also enables Function as a Service (FaaS) on TKGI for cloud-native applications. In addition to Prometheus monitoring APIs, MinIO also has audit tracing and logging capabilities for monitoring. The whole solution is deployed as a Kubernetes StatefulSet on TKGI.
The MinIO Kubernetes Operator allows IT to manage large scale data infrastructure through a web-based management console without requiring specialized DevOps skills. This includes expansion, live upgrades, remote site mirroring, encryption key management service, identity and access policy management.
“We are delighted to make our high-performance object storage available on the VMware Cloud Marketplace,” noted MinIO co-founder and COO, Garima Kapoor. “This step builds upon our prior work with Pivotal and positions us to expand our relationship with VMware in the coming quarters as they continue their investment in Kubernetes.”
