Midokura Named CRN Emerging Vendor for 2013

Midokura's MidoNet Solution Recognized for Innovative and Channel-Promising Approach to Network Virtualization

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - Midokura, a global startup focused on network virtualization, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel's CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot technology startups making an impact on the channel and an impression on the technology industry as a whole. Midokura recently announced general availability of its flagship product, MidoNet, an overlay-based approach to virtualizing an organization's network. Like other vendors on the CRN list, Midokura's MidoNet is recognized for not only being innovative, but generating the high margins that solution providers require in today's competitive marketplace.

"Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. "The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market."

MidoNet virtualizes the network stack for cloud platforms, such as OpenStack and Apache CloudStack. It is a distributed, decentralized, multi-layer software-defined virtual network solution specifically designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Midokura's 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.

"Midokura is honored to be recognized by CRN as a hot startup and key emerging technology vendor for 2013," said Dan Dumitriu, co-founder and CEO of Midokura. "The software-defined networking industry continues to mature and expand, we are primed for growth and are proud to be offering the market our unique brand of network virtualization with MidoNet, a technology that delivers a scalable, automated and resilient solution.
