In 2007, GlusterFS revolutionized the way large, distributed storage solutions were implemented across organizations -anyone could now use commodity hardware to create distributed storage solutions for media streaming, data analysis and other data intensive tasks using GlusterFS. Red Hat acquired GlusterFS in 2011. Recently one of the founders of GlusterFS, Anand Babu Periasamy, announced a new open source project, Minio. Minio is designed to enable application developers to build their own cloud storage. I recently interviewed Anand Babu to learn more about Minio.
