Minio is pretty good - I worked with them for a while (updated their
wiki as well for FreeBSD support, testing and ran a POC at my old shop).
They are very eager to have more FreeBSD involvement, and ZFS is a
really good fit for Minio as well. I would classify it as a system
capable of supporting small'ish S3 environments and i don't think it has
support yet for distributed backing datastores. If you were building a
huge S3-like system you'd probably want it backed by a clustered
filesystem so you can scale out storage and IOPS between many nodes in
Their "mc" S3 client is also pretty awesome - much better than the "aws
s3" tools IMHO for interacting with S3.
Hope this helps,
