Midokura Announces Integration with Mirantis OpenStack for Easier, Affordable and More Scalable Networking
Midokura, the global innovator in software network virtualization, today announced its integration with Mirantis OpenStack, providing joint customers an integrated solution for rapid OpenStack deployment. The MidoNet Plugin for Fuel is available immediately.

"Software Defined Networking solutions are a key enabler for OpenStack customers to build out large-scale clouds and to reduce their operational costs and increase overall agility," said Kamesh Pemmaraju, VP of product marketing at Mirantis. "We are happy to partner with Midokura to bring a unique, distributed network virtualization architecture to our customer base. The Fuel plugin automates the entire deployment of the solution and makes it easy for customers to use the joint solution out-of-the-box."

Mirantis OpenStack provides users exceptional reliability and flexibility from traditional virtualization. It leverages Fuel, an open source deployment and control plane for OpenStack, to streamline deployment automation. Developed as an OpenStack community effort, Fuel provides an intuitive, GUI-driven experience for not only automated deployment, but also management of OpenStack related community projects and plugins.

Midokura's award-winning Midokura Enterprise Management (MEM) technology provides a software layer directly within existing physical network hardware, turning physical machines into a virtual platform that can scale to hundreds of thousands of virtual ports. The MidoNet Plugin for Fuel provides an integrated solution marrying two leading technologies for rapid OpenStack deployment.

"We recognize that Mirantis customers receive outstanding end-to-end support for deploying OpenStack in production," said Adam Johnson, VP of business for Midokura. "The only missing piece was an easy-to-deploy and scalable networking overlay technology. Today, we are delighted to cement our technical and business alliance with Mirantis and fill the gap with the availability of the MidoNet plugin for Fuel. We look forward to delivering easier, more affordable and more scalable networking to Mirantis customers around the globe."
