Midokura Announces Latest Enterprise-Grade Network Virtualization Technology Release

New Midokura Enterprise MidoNet Solution Offers Support for Key Enterprise Platforms, Enables Customers to Bridge Existing Virtualization Technologies and Cloud Orchestration Solutions Simply and at Scale.

Midokura, a global startup focused on network virtualization, today announced the latest release of Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM), a scalable network virtualization solution designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds. The production-ready, enterprise-grade MidoNet offers support for key enterprise platforms, including VMware vSphere, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6 and Open Stack.

“At Midokura, we continue to disrupt the market and innovate our network virtualization solution to make cloud adoption seamless and easy for the enterprise,” said Dan Dumitriu, co-founder and CEO of Midokura. “Our latest Enterprise MidoNet release marks the next step in our product evolution by offering support for platforms that are already proven and well-entrenched in modern enterprise data centre. The result is that businesses can make the most of their technology investments with Midokura’s open, scalable network virtualization for heterogeneous hypervisors and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds.”

Enterprises continue to realize the benefits of moving to the cloud, but the journey can still be disruptive to business and IT. Given this, it is important to control downside costs and risks that can outweigh the benefits. Enter MEM, which offers enterprises a smooth transition while also bridging their existing virtualization technologies, including vSphere, with cloud orchestration solutions, such as OpenStack.

MEM creates an intelligent, software-based network abstraction layer between the hosts and the physical network, by decoupling the IaaS cloud from the network hardware. Operators in turn can build isolated networks in software that overlays the existing hardware-based network infrastructure. Designed for distributed computing, MEM provides per-tenant network control so that operators can create and make changes to the virtual network without disturbing the physical infrastructure via the intuitive MidoNet Manager.
