Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 : An Overview, Performance, and Pricing

Posted on

Introduction

MinIO is a cloud storage service for Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage and Microsoft Azure Blobs. It’s built on top of Amazon S3 and provides an object-based API based on in-process Ceph RBD (Rados Block Device) replication.

MinIO supports multiple storage backends such as AWS EBS or Google Persistent Disk (GPD). You can also use Minio with any object store that implements the S3 API, such as Wasabi, Backblaze B2 or even Openstack Swift.

MinIO is as fast as Wasabi

MinIO is as fast as Wasabi, but why?

Both Wasabi and MinIO are designed to be fast and reliable. However, there’s a difference in how they do this. While both services use the same underlying storage infrastructure (AWS S3), they have different features that help them deliver their respective speeds.

MinIO is cheaper than Wasabi

MinIO is a cost-effective solution for those looking to access their data from anywhere. Wasabi offers a much cheaper option, but it requires the user to purchase an additional device. MinIO can be used with a wide range of cloud services, including Amazon’s S3, Google Cloud Storage and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage.

MinIO’s REST API is more complete than Wasabi’s

MinIO’s REST API is more complete than Wasabi’s. The MinIO protocol supports all of the same operations as Wasabi, but adds additional features like object locking and byte range reads/writes.

MinIO also supports a subset of the operations that Wasabi does not. For example, you can use it to get information about your bucket and keys without having to first create them (using a PUT request).

CloudCDN

What is CloudCDN?

As the name suggests, cloudCDN stands for Content Delivery Network. A content delivery network (CDN) is a distributed network of proxy servers deployed in multiple data centers. The goal of any CDN is to serve content at the best possible speed and quality by providing closer proximity between the end-user and the server storing that content. This means that when you’re hosting your website or application on AWS or Azure, its static assets can be automatically replicated across multiple regions which will then serve them with sub-millisecond latency whenever they are requested from anywhere around the globe.

Wasabi s3

Wasabi is a cloud storage provider that offers S3-compatible storage. You can use Wasabi as a standalone solution or as an additional backend to your existing infrastructure.

Wasabi provides multi-region, low latency object storage on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) global infrastructure. It’s an S3-compatible service that allows you to access your data from anywhere in the world at any time, with features such as:

MinIO s3

MinIO s3 is a cloud storage service that is compatible with S3. It’s also a distributed object store and high performance object storage system, as well as an open source project.

MinIO supports multiple storage backends

MinIO supports multiple storage backends. MinIO supports Amazon S3, AWS GovCloud (US), Google Cloud Storage, Azure Blob Storage, and Alibaba Cloud Storage. Wasabi only supports Amazon S3.

MinIO is supported by many major cloud providers

MinIO is supported by many major cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Alibaba Cloud.

Wasabi does not have any support from major cloud providers.

Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 : Performance

Wasabi S3 and MinIO S3 are two of the most popular Amazon S3 compatible object storage systems. Both systems allow you to store data on a storage system, which is provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). While both of these products are powerful, there are several key differences between them that make each one more suitable for different types of use cases. Here we’ll cover some of these differences and why they’re important for choosing the right CDN solution for your business’ needs.

Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 : Pricing

  • Wasabi S3 is cheaper than MinIO S3.
  • Wasabi S3 is free for up to 10 terabytes, while MinIO S3 is free for up to 1 terabyte.
  • Although both services are priced on a per-gigabyte basis after their free tiers, Wasabi charges only $0.023 per gigabyte (GB) over the first 10 TB, while MinIO charges $0.01 per GB over the first terabyte of storage space used in a month.

Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 : Operational compatibility

Wasabi S3 and MinIO S3 are compatible with most of the cloud providers. They both support AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.

Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 : Scalability and maintenance

One of the biggest differences between Wasabi S3 and MinIO S3 is in their scalability. Wasabi has a greater number of supported objects than MinIO, but it also supports more concurrent users. This means that you can handle more file activity on your server without overloading it.

Wasabi is also easier to maintain than MinIO because you don’t need to manage any storage devices or configure storage clusters. Additionally, if there are issues with your installation, you can contact AWS Support (which is included in your subscription) instead of being responsible for solving them yourself.

Finally, while both services provide end-to-end encryption and take security seriously, Wasabi offers an additional layer of protection: automatic auditing capabilities that give admins insight into who accessed what files when they were stored online

Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 : Security

In this section, we’ll compare the security of Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3 and see which one is more secure.

Security is one of the most important aspects of any cloud storage service. The main reason for this is because your data is being stored on a remote server that you have no control over and therefore need to trust that it’s treated with care. If you don’t feel confident about the security measures taken by either vendor, then you might want to consider another provider or going with an on-premise solution instead.

How to Choose Between Wasabi S3 vs MinIO S3

Choosing the right service for your needs is important because you want to know you are getting the best deal. There are a lot of things to consider when choosing a cloud-based storage provider, so let’s take a look at some of those things:

  • Pricing: Look up pricing on their websites and compare it with other providers. Make sure that the prices are reasonable and worth your money; if not, then there must be something else that makes it worth your while (for example, if there is a small fee but faster speeds).
  • Operational Compatibility: Check if they work with whatever type of file system or protocol you need them too (e.g., S3). Also check if they support any other features such as encryption or compression (which can significantly reduce storage costs).
  • Scalability And Maintenance: Make sure that this service has good scalability so it can grow with your business without making drastic changes to its infrastructure. It should also have good maintenance options since we all know how much downtime costs companies in lost productivity at work!

You can decide between these two services depending on your company’s needs.

When it comes to choosing a service, you can decide between these two services depending on your company’s needs. You’ll want to determine whether you need a very fast service with a simple API or one that offers more flexibility and completeness in its API.

Wasabi is a great option for companies who need something that can handle large loads of data quickly. Its performance is impressive and the team behind it has done extensive testing to ensure that it will work well in real-world environments as well as during tests. It also has excellent support for both S3 and Glacier APIs, which means that whatever your application uses for storage will be compatible with Wasabi.

For example, if your application simply stores data locally and wants to access it from other applications or even another server without going through an intermediary server (such as Wasabi), this wouldn’t be possible because Wasabi doesn’t provide direct access via the S3 API without first uploading everything into its servers first (and even then not all files will be available instantly). This might be okay if you don’t mind waiting until all data has been uploaded before accessing them again but may not always fit every use case well enough if speed matters more than anything else

MinIO is a better fit for Cloud CDN use cases compared with Wasabi. For example, see the Cloud CDN StackOverflow post

Wasabi is a great option for companies that need the ability to store large amounts of data. It offers high availability and redundancy as well as unlimited snapshots, which are useful for long-term retention or disaster recovery.

Minio is a good choice for companies that want to store large amounts of data but don’t need all of the features that Wasabi offers. Minio offers similar levels of availability, durability, scalability and performance at significantly lower prices than Wasabi’s S3 service

Conclusion

MinIO is the better choice when it comes to using S3 buckets to power your Cloud CDN. While Wasabi is a great service that we recommend for most companies, MinIO’s range of features and support for multiple storage backends make it an even more attractive option for those who need more than just a simple bucket on their servers.
