MinIO exceeds one billion cumulative Docker downloads

PALO ALTO, Calif., September 22, 2022 — MinIO Inc., makers of the multi-cloud object storage suite MinIO, announced today that it has surpassed 1 billion cumulative downloads of Docker as the company sees significant growth in clients, size of agreements and expansion. Seventy-five percent of Fortune 100 companies run MinIOs, underscoring the critical role open source technology plays for enterprise cloud architectures.

Achieving one billion cumulative downloads of Docker represents a significant milestone, never before reached by a software-defined object storage company. Additionally, the rate of adoption continues to accelerate, with the company logging up to 1.3 million Docker pulls per day through 2022.

In addition to Docker milestones, MinIO recently achieved its 35,000th star on GitHub, placing it in the top 250 public repositories on the platform out of more than 28 million. This level of recognition in the GitHub community is generally reserved for databases and underscores the impact of MinIO on the data storage landscape. MinIO’s GitHub Star milestone is more than triple the next open source object store despite being 10 years younger.

Finally, the MinIO Slack community also continues to grow, with its Slack channel approaching 20,000 members.

Product-driven growth is a function of the best software-defined object store on the market, an unwavering commitment to true multi-cloud functionality, a frictionless open source strategy, and an obsession with customer success. Together, these attributes have made MinIO the leading object storage company on the market and have changed the way companies think about object storage.

The MinIO object store is the fastest in the world, with published GET/PUT performance benchmarks exceeding 325 and 165 GiB/sec, respectively, on just 32 NVMe nodes. This performance has made MinIO the object store of choice for leading machine learning frameworks, analytics applications, databases, web applications, and other performance-oriented workloads. The feature-rich object storage suite is available in public cloud, private cloud, and edge. This includes public cloud deployments on Google Kubernetes Engine, Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service, Azure Kubernetes Service, private cloud deployments on Red Hat OpenShift, VMware Tanzu, HPE Ezmeral, SUSE Rancher, plus millions of color and edge deployments.

“A multi-cloud architecture just makes sense for large distributed enterprises,” said Andy Green, vice president of global infrastructure and IT operations at PRGX. “MinIO’s Kubernetes-native object store is lightweight and can be packed densely on a server, making it ideal for containerization. This also allows MinIO to run anywhere and on any cloud, from the edge to the data center.”

“Developers are the engine of value creation in the company,” said AB Perisamy, co-founder and CEO of MinIO. “By creating a product for them, we have changed the storage landscape, making the appliance model obsolete, challenging legacy SAN/NAS implementations, and altering the perspective of what object storage was capable of. Developers and architects are partners in our journey and we are honored by their support.”

Following the company’s $103 million Series B round in January, which valued MinIO at more than $1 billion, the company has already doubled its revenue.

“Early on we saw the potential of MinIO to rethink storage with a high-performance multi-cloud solution and disrupt an uninspired legacy market with a new approach,” said Mark Rostick of Intel Capital. “The power, simplicity, and ability of MinIO to run anywhere, from the edge to the cloud, fueled one of the most compelling product-driven growth stories in the technology space, leading to this unprecedented milestone.” .
