Midokura Wins Network Innovation Award for Open Source MidoNet
Midokura, the global innovator in software network virtualization, today announced its win of the Network Innovation Awards, run by TechTarget's Midokura won for its achievements with MidoNet Community Edition, the open source version of its network virtualization solution designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds.

The Network Innovation Awards recognize companies making significant advances in several areas such as network management, data center network fabric, programmable networking, remote network management and software-defined networking (SDN).

Midokura first open sourced the code behind its popular MidoNet technology in November 2014. The bold move established the industry's first open, vendor-agnostic network virtualization solution, which has quickly gained popularity in over 120 countries. Additionally, nearly 20 partners have announced support for the project, integrating MidoNet with industry-leading cloud platforms and technologies. For more details, read the interview with Susan Wu, director of technical marketing at Midokura:

"Midokura is thrilled to be recognized by TechTarget's for our innovations in open source network virtualization," said Dan Mihai Dumitriu, CEO of Midokura. "We took a bold path to let the community drive the product direction, roadmap and governance for MidoNet, and this accolade is a true testament to the project's success. We continue our efforts to lead the networking industry's transformation through open source, and we look forward to increasing adoption of our MidoNet Community Edition in the coming year."

The MidoNet platform 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. Midokura also offers Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM), a production-ready, enterprise-grade version that includes 24/7 support, documentation, hardened packages and the MidoNet Manager (GUI).
