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 
your cluster.

Their "mc" S3 client is also pretty awesome - much better than the "aws 
s3" tools IMHO for interacting with S3.

Hope this helps,
