Midokura has announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform Version 7 (RHEL OSP 7) certification for the latest version of Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM), a scalable network virtualization solution designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds. With MEM as the first certified plugin for RHEL OSP 7, Midokura and Red Hat will help drive enterprise adoption for OpenStack cloud deployments.

“The strength of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform lies in joint engineering with RHEL and the robust ecosystem of certified networking solutions,” said Adam Johnson, VP of business for Midokura. “We are pleased to be working closely with Red Hat and the OpenStack Neutron core team to drive requirements from enterprises and web services companies into our joint solutions.”

Announced in May, the latest MEM 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 new enterprise-grade MEM release offers enhanced operational and management features, along with new support for OpenStack Kilo, and for container-based environments, such as Docker.

Midokura technology will be showcased at the Red Hat booth at VMworld San Francisco from August 30 to September 3. For event details and registration, visit the website.
