Germany's SysEleven Selects Midokura for Network Virtualization

Managed Hosting and Public Cloud Provider Leverages Midokura to Meet Strict New Data Sovereignty and IT Security Government Requirements

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2016) - OPENSTACK SUMMIT 2016 -- Midokura, the global innovator in software network virtualization, today announced that Berlin-based managed hosting and public cloud provider SysEleven has selected its award-winning Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM) technology as the network virtualization overlay of choice and the default networking technology for the SysEleven Infrastructure Stack.

The company recently rebuilt its managed hosting platform based on OpenStack. The move to Midokura and OpenStack enables SysEleven to continue to innovate, while meeting the German government's strict data sovereignty and IT security requirements. SysEleven selected Midokura technology due to its ability to help the provider easily manage application workloads, along with its proven performance in the SysEleven Infrastructure Stack, which supports a bandwidth of up to 100 gigabytes per second.

"The SysEleven heritage came from delivering complex web applications supporting media and television advertising for the European market," said Marc Korthaus, CEO of SysEleven. "Because we maintain and operate the entire application stack for our customers, we have to ensure that all components in our SysEleven Stack are both robust and distributed. Midokura Enterprise MidoNet met all our requirements and offered the ideal network virtualization overlay solution as we continue to deliver on the promise of high-availability and consistency to our customers."

Midokura's 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. In turn, operators can build isolated networks in software to overlay the existing hardware-based network infrastructure. Midokura's open source version of its core MidoNet technology is quickly gaining in popularity among organizations of all sizes in more than 120 countries.

"Similar to SysEleven, the founders of Midokura have deep backgrounds in building complex online applications for Amazon," said Adam Johnson, vice president of business at Midokura. "Adding SysEleven to our customer roster and being included into the SysEleven Stack is an affirmation that our Midokura Enterprise MidoNet has the robustness to support the most heavily trafficked networks in web applications being built today. Midokura technology continues to see adoption by the world's most cutting-edge enterprises."
