MinIO Leverages Intel Collaboration to Provide Greater Analytic Workload Performance

MinIO Inc., innovators behind high performance, Kubernetes-native object storage for the multi-cloud, are announcing their collaboration with Intel to yield greater performance for mission-critical/advanced analytic workloads via optimized infrastructure options.

“Intel has been a strategic partner of MinIO since the inception of the company. We continue to expand the partnership and collaborate on R&D, benchmarking, and customer success opportunities. We share a technology vision that is informed by machine learning, is multi-cloud, containerized, orchestrated, and increasingly edge oriented,” said Garima Kapoor, co-founder and COO of MinIO. “Our work together continues to push the boundaries of innovation and our continued optimization on Intel platforms have resulted in record-setting performance benchmarks.”

MinIO Multi-Cloud Object Storage suite is the driving platform behind MinIO’s innovations, referenced as a leading object store for machine learning frameworks, analytics applications, databases, web applications, and other performance-oriented workloads, according to the vendor. With optimizations for 3rd-gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, MinIO’s system provides enhanced performance quality. According to the vendor, MinIO’s architecture is highly regarded for both its simplicity and scales from terabytes to exabytes easily. Compounding MinIO’s technological advantages with the performance, security, scalable storage, and memory of Intel platforms creates a highly optimized system for heavy workloads.

“Every enterprise today is a data enterprise, and every enterprise today needs mature multi-cloud experiences. Intel sees this across our portfolio and is excited to work with MinIO to address the need in this environment,” said Arijit Bandyopadhyay, CTO of enterprise analytics and AI and head of strategy for enterprise and cloud group at Intel Corporation. “We’re bullish about our collaboration with MinIO because performance at scale is critical for AI and Augmented Analytics workloads. MinIO, with its software-defined, high performance S3 object storage optimized for 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, helps enterprises overcome challenges of large primary storage across a range of use cases from Kubernetes-powered cloud applications to AI/ML/advanced analytics workloads.”
