ppc64le: Minio on Power

Minio is a high performance distributed object storage server, designed for large-scale private cloud infrastructure. Recently, while investigating alternatives to replace S3 on a Travis CI Enterprise setup I got Minio as an option. However, Minio wasn’t ported to Power, so my first step was to port it (which was very easy I would say).… Continue reading ppc64le: Minio on Power
