May 23, 2017 – Minio, the AWS S3-compatible cloud storage server, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the industry-standard platform for cloud applications, as a Silver member. Minio joins Google, EMC, HPE, IBM, Pivotal, SAP, VW, VMware and more than 60 other technology innovators as a Foundation member. Through its membership, Minio will provide enterprise grade storage solutions including cloud storage, multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud storage.
“Cloud Foundry is the quickest way to build cloud-native applications without worrying about containers and orchestration,” said Anand Babu (AB) Periasamy, Minio, Inc., CEO and Co-founder. “Minio makes the storage component of Cloud Foundry portable across public and private clouds.”
Minio adoption has grown at an outstanding rate within a short time frame. With more than 1.3 million Docker pulls and its unique hardware and cloud-agnostic design, Minio can run on multiple backends, making it the ideal choice for large-scale, unstructured data storage deployments.
“Minio is a great addition to the Foundation. Distributed object storage is an important facet to the Cloud Foundry stack,” said Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation. “I’m excited to welcome Minio to our community.”
With its Foundation membership, Minio underscores its aim to liberate enterprise customers from vendor lock-in, enabling them to build highly scalable, cloud-native storage solutions.
Based in Palo Alto, California, Minio was founded in 2014 and provides an object storage server built for cloud applications and DevOps. The company is privately-held and backed by leading venture capital firms and industry leaders.
