anyone using mysql for simple key value store
is probably using the wrong product.
Minio and its µServer were first described by El Reg in December a year ago. Now we have had a closer look, courtesy of a press tour to Silicon Valley earlier this month.

Possibly. Though the memcached interface to InnoDB with MySQL 5.6 is pretty great. And you get replication of the data for free, persistence and you don't have to operate a separate key-value infrastructure unless you need to.

A bit of me isn't complaining. I lose count of how many times this cycle has paid dividends... but it does feel like a hamster in a wheel.
One of the project's I'm working on presently uses Minio (for object storage).
We storage all user uploaded content as objects (in Minio) with all of the metadata about them in PostgreSQL.
It's working pretty well so far during development - not yet rolled out into production. Further development of the main project itself needed before that happens.
But yeah, if you're looking for object storage that's simple to use, give it a shot. The SDK is pretty simple, and well documented with good example. At least for Golang, which is what we're using it with. :)
