MidoNet Provides OpenStack Communities With Viable Network Virtualization Solution

HONG KONG--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - OpenStack Summit Hong Kong -- Midokura, a global startup focused on network virtualization, today announced Red Hat certification for MidoNet, a network virtualization solution for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. One of the newest technologies to be certified for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, MidoNet is a highly scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) product that delivers an open, flexible, and enterprise-ready private cloud foundation built on the OpenStack community project, integrated with and optimized for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.

"The Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform Certification provides a framework for solution validation and assurances that the solutions will deliver ongoing value to our customers," said Mike Werner, Senior Director, Global Ecosystems, Red Hat. "We are delighted to add Midokura's driver to the ranks of solutions that have been certified against Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, as these solutions bring choice and the full power of our broad OpenStack ecosystem to customers."

Midokura's flagship product, MidoNet, brings innovative cloud networking technology to the world by virtualizing the network stack for cloud platforms. It is a distributed, decentralized, multi-layer network virtualization solution specifically designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Midokura's unique approach not only adds automation that significantly reduces the human cost (OPEX) of managing the network, but also impacts the overall economics of cloud computing (CAPEX) by simplifying network requirements.

In April of this year, Midokura joined the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network, an ecosystem focused on building an extensive community around Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and cloud infrastructure technologies.

"We're proud to be a network virtualization vendor certified for the Red Hat Linux Enterprise OpenStack Platform," said Dan Mihai Dumitriu, CEO for Midokura.
