MinIO, a Kubernetes-native object storage vendor, added Console, Operator, and SUBNET Health features to its suite of object storage software. These new features simplify the deployment of multitenant object storage using Kubernetes.
MinIO Kubernetes Operator: The Operator extends MinIO’s Kubernetes technology by encapsulating all critical DevOps tasks into software that can be consumed by enterprise IT. Through the Operator, IT administrators can deploy and manage large object storage infrastructure independent of the underlying infrastructure -- public, private, and edge. The Operator encapsulates the capabilities required for tenant creation, expansion, and management. The MinIO Operator is available on Kubernetes distributions. In addition, MinIO is making the Operator available on major public cloud providers.
MinIO Console: Building on top of the MinIO Operator Custom Resource Definition APIs, the MinIO Console provides an intuitive graphical interface to manage and monitor the clusters. Designed for the needs of IT administrators and auditors, it presents a simple interface to the most advanced features of the MinIO storage suite. With the Console, IT can provide public cloud-like, self-service interfaces to their application teams. Built to support at-scale deployments with minimal overhead, the Console enables administrators and users to provision multitenant object storage as a service, visually inspect the health of the system, perform key audit tasks, and integrate with other components with just a handful of clicks.
SUBNET Health: SUBNET Health automates root cause analysis by performing multipoint inspection across drives, network, CPU, memory, operating systems, containers, and MinIO software components. By turning supportability into a software service, MinIO is able to deliver tight SLAs across a large number of customers. SUBNET Health is designed to operate in both online and air-gapped environments.
