Enterprise File Fabric™ for MinIO

The Enterprise File Fabric for MinIO Object Storage

The Storage Made Easy® Enterprise File Fabric™ provides federated authentication and end user access into S3 compatible MinIO Object Storage.

The File Fabric indexes MinIO Object data and makes it available in a file system that can be specific to MinIO or part of a global file system that encompasses other on-premises or on-cloud storage that may be used within a company.

Once data is indexed, The File Fabric provides intelligent content based search and policy-based enforcement across MinIO Object data.

The File Fabric also offers large file transfer acceleration to end users and is able to tier data, rapidly, to and from MinIO Object Store.
