MinIO Integration

MinIO is an enterprise-grade object storage solution with the promise of simplicity, reliability, high performance, and scalability. Its cloud-native architecture allows you to work with data-intensive workloads without compromising speed and performance.
With the resources and tools to build modern, production-ready, modern data-driven applications, MinIO stands out as the fastest-growing object storage system out there.

What You Can Do with MinIO

  • Completely open-source, and released under the Apache V2 license
  • Kubernetes-friendly, which means it supports containerization and orchestration
  • Fully compatible with the Amazon S3 API for efficient object storage
  • Minimum configuration and system administration makes it easy to set up and use MinIO
  • Support for cutting-edge machine learning and Big Data analytics

Setting up MinIO for storing your event data via different sources can be quite time-consuming. Besides specifying individual buckets to store your data, you need to transform your data manually so that it can be picked up for analysis.

By integrating RudderStack with MinIO, you can save precious time in manually configuring your MinIO buckets.

Securely Send Your Event Data to MinIO Buckets Using RudderStack

With RudderStack, you can send your event data to your MinIO with ease. Configure MinIO as a destination by entering the relevant MinIO connection settings. RudderStack will then start collecting all the events from your source and sending them to the specified MinIO buckets instantly. RudderStack also transforms the event data into a compatible JSON format before sending it to MinIO, so you can focus on getting the relevant business insights out of your data without having to worry about the right format.

By Adding MinIO Support for RudderStack, You Can:

  • Connect to MinIO without having to write a single line of code
  • Collect data from a variety of sources and send them securely to MinIO
  • Dump your data into MinIO buckets without having to specify a warehouse schema definition
  • Transform your event data into the right format for machine learning and analytics

MinIO makes it very easy to create buckets of files consisting of varying data types

FAQs

What is MinIO?
MinIO is a Kubernetes-native object storage service that focuses on scalability and high performance. It is highly resilient, and protects your data against hardware failures and corruption. With MinIO, it is possible to build a high-performance cloud-native data infrastructure that is capable of handling large volumes of machine learning, analytics and application data workloads. MinIO is completely open source, and is compatible with Amazon S3 API.
How does MinIO work?
MinIO is essentially an object storage service, meaning data and the associated metadata are written together as objects. This eliminates the need for a separate database for storing metadata. In addition to storing the data securely and reliably, MinIO also supports encryption and strictly consistent operations.
What is MinIO in distributed mode?
In a distributed mode, you can use MinIO on different machines and pool multiple drives into a single object storage server. Because these drives are distributed across multiple nodes, a distributed version of MinIO can handle multiple node failures and still ensure complete data protection.
Does MinIO need Docker to be deployed?
You can easily use MinIO as a Docker container, or as a standalone binary distribution on platforms such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. You can deploy a distributed version of MinIO via Docker Compose or Swarm. While Docker Compose creates a single host, multi-container deployment, Swarm is used to create a multi-host, multi-container deployment. In short, you can quickly get started with Docker Compose when it comes to using a distributed version of MinIO. It is also ideal for testing and staging environments. On the other hand, deploying a distributed version of MinIO on Swarm gives your better control and a robust deployment in production.
