Minio for PCF

Amazon S3 Compatible, Highly Available Object Storage Solution

Minio for PCF provides a highly available (HA) enterprise grade object storage server for developers. Developers can easily get an Amazon S3 compatible persistent storage service for all of their cloud-native applications running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

Amazon S3 Compatible APIs

Amazon S3 API is the de-facto standard for object storage. Minio implements Amazon S3 v2 and v4 APIs. Use Minio SDK, Minio Client, AWS SDK and AWS CLI to access Minio Solution.

High Performance Data Protection, Strong Encryption, and Tamper-Proof

Minio protects data against hardware failures using erasure code and bitrot detection. Both server side and client side encryption are supported using AES-256-GCM, ChaCha20-Poly1305, and AES-CBC. Encrypted objects are also tamper-proofed with AEAD server side encryption.

Highly Available

Minio provides highly available (HA) persistent storage for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) applications. Minio server can tolerate up to (N/2)-1 node failures. In addition, you may configure Minio server to continuously mirror data between Minio and any Amazon S3 compatible storage solution.
