Carahsoft to Distribute MinIO’s Object Storage System to Government Customers

Redwood City, California-based MinIO has entered into a distribution agreement with Carahsoft Technology to make its software-defined object storage solution available to government customers, including users in the defense, intelligence and education sectors. 

As MinIO’s master government aggregator, Carahsoft will offer the company’s object storage system via its reseller partners, along with the NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement V and Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-Software 2 contracts. The partnership offers public sector users the capability to establish diverse, scaled data networks, such as modern data lakes and autonomous, mission-specific data storage capabilities, Carahsoft said.

MinIO’s storage system on 32 nodes of commodity hardware can easily scale from gigabytes to exabytes and support any workload, including artificial intelligence and analytics data needs, Carahsoft noted.

MinIO designed its storage solution to work with any Kubernetes distribution model, providing flexibility for various users, such as on-premises data centers and special-purpose government public clouds,

According to Garima Kapoor, MinIO co-founder and co-CEO, the company’s platform addresses various user needs, whether migrating large legacy data architectures or creating new AI data lakes. Kapoor expressed excitement over MinIO’s partnership with Carahsoft and its resellers, noting it provides tools to the public sector in navigating “unique challenges.”
