IaaS #Cloud Service Provider Zetta.IO Selects @Midokura for Network Virtualization
Midokura, a global company focused on network virtualization, today announced that Zetta.IO, a progressive OpenStack-based Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud Service provider based in Norway, has selected its award-winning MidoNet network virtualization technology. Zetta.IO, who services the Scandinavian region, selected to power its OpenStack IaaS service with MidoNet because it offered them the best overlay SDN option.

"We felt Midokura's MidoNet was the best network virtualization solution available. Time-to-market, stability and scalability are all paramount for our success. Midokura understands this and is dedicated to helping us reach our goals of a production-ready cloud," said Dag Stenstad, CTO of Zetta.IO.

OpenStack Networking is a pluggable, scalable and API-driven system for managing multi-tenant cloud networks. Similar to other aspects of the cloud operating system, it can be used by administrators and users to increase the value of existing data center assets. OpenStack Networking ensures the network will not be the bottleneck or limiting factor in a cloud deployment and gives users true self-service, even over their network configurations.

MidoNet integrates with leading cloud platforms, including OpenStack. It is a software-based, highly distributed network virtualization system that allows enterprises and service providers to build, run and manage virtual networks with increased control and flexibility. Using industry standards and leveraging existing physical infrastructure, MidoNet reduces costs and improves stability, scalability and performance of networks.

"Companies around the globe are benefiting from our unique brand of network virtualization," said Dan Mihai Dumitriu, co-founder and CEO of Midokura. "We congratulate Zetta.IO on the huge feat of successfully launching a Scandinavian Cloud. We understand self service is important for cloud tenants so we're thrilled Zetta.IO selected our disruptive MidoNet technology to be part of the solution."

Midokura is proud to continue to be recognized by the industry for network virtualization innovation and overall company success. Last month, Midokura was named grand prize winner for Nokia Networks' Silicon Valley Open Innovation Challenge. And for a second consecutive year, the company was also named to CRN's Emerging Vendors 2014: Virtualization Vendors, CRN's 10 Coolest Virtualization Startups of 2014 and the AlwaysOn Global 250 Top Private Companies.
