"Collectively, these features allow customers to rapidly adopt even the most advanced MinIO capabilities while providing a roadmap for increased automation as they scale their deployments and workloads," MinIO CEO and co-founder AB Periasamy said in a press release. "SUBNET Health is a critical component of MinIO's hybrid cloud strategy and provides customers with the confidence to run on any hardware, in any environment and on any cloud."

The three new tools are all licensed under GNU AGPL v3 as open source software. MinIO said it can provide exceptions to the obligations associated with the AGPL v3 through a commercial license, while such license holders can gain access to the MinIO Subscription Network (SUBNET). This service includes 24/7/365 direct-to-engineer support, access to the Panic Button, SUBNET Health, architecture, performance and security reviews and other benefits.
