Midokura's MidoNet Now Available to Canonical Customers via Juju Charms Plugin, Offers Networking Overlay That Is Both Easy to Deploy and Scale

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and TOKYO, JAPAN--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2015) - OpenStack Summit Tokyo 2015 -- Midokura, the global innovator in software network virtualization, today announced the integration of its flagship Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM) technology with Ubuntu OpenStack. Now, users can benefit from the power of an integrated cloud solution that combines industry-leading technology from Midokura with one of the most widely deployed commercial distributions of OpenStack.

"Canonical continues to expand our SDN ecosystem to ease the deployment of OpenStack with an SDN. Midokura is an Ubuntu Cloud partner, and today Midokura Enterprise MidoNet is available to our customers through the MidoNet Juju Charm. The simplicity and agility inherent in MEM's distributed architecture is now easier to deploy with OpenStack," said John Zannos, Canonical VP of WW Alliances and Ecosystem. "With this seamless integration in place, Ubuntu OpenStack and MEM will be deployable in minutes using Juju and the MidoNet Juju Charm."

Midokura looks forward to delivering simpler, more agile and more secure networking to Canonical customers worldwide as they are now able to access our award-winning Midokura Enterprise MidoNet network virtualization technology."
