This wasn’t on my 2022 bingo card…
According to MinIO, Nutanix Objects has been using MinIO for years without disclosing this, and after years of discussions, they’ve been unable to find a good faith solution to this. Therefore MinIO have revoked Nutanix’s licenses to MinIO software.
I don’t want to misinterpret this as MinIO’s blog post has strong legal vibes to it, but MinIO are advising customers of Nutanix Objects may have legal & security risks by continuing to use Nutanix Objects.
You can find MinIO’s statement here: https://blog.min.io/nutanix-objects-violates-minios-open-source-license/
As of the time of writing, I’ve been unable to find any announcements from Nutanix relating to their perspective on the matter, via their social media, blog or news resources.
If you utilise Nutanix Objects, you certainly need to question how this impacts you, and sooner rather than later!
