Midokura's Network Virtualization Technology Identified as Third-Party Network Driver of Choice for Large Scale OpenStack Clouds in Production

Midokura, the global innovator in software network virtualization, today announced that its award-winning Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM) technology is the #1 third-party Neutron plugin of choice for large-scale OpenStack Clouds with more than 1,000 cores, according to the latest OpenStack User Survey. As Project Neutron has matured with 89 percent adoption rates, the ranking shows significant momentum following Midokura's November 2014 decision to open source the core code behind its MidoNet technology.

"Our decision to open source the code behind our MEM network virtualization technology was a directional move for the company that has led to a major pay-off," said Dan Mihai Dumitriu, co-founder and CEO of Midokura. "The result has been greater adoption of MEM as large-scale OpenStack operators enjoy a lower barrier to entry. This has been especially beneficial for organizations in regions and countries with strict data privacy guidelines, particularly those in Europe, Japan and China."

The MEM technology offers 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. The latest release of MEM offers enhanced operational and management features, via MEM Insights, support for NFV use cases and improved application availability.

MidoNet, the open source version of MEM, is the industry's first truly open vendor-agnostic network virtualization solution for the OpenStack community. Midokura continues to innovate and support the OpenStack community as among the most active contributor to the Neutron Mitaka release. Customers know they can rely on Midokura technology to deliver reduced overall network costs and improved stability, scalability and performance.
