MidoNet is a production-grade open source network virtualization solution that allows operators to build isolated networks in software that overlays the existing hardware-based network infrastructure. It addresses the shortcomings in OpenStack Neutron by replacing the default Open vSwitch (OVS) plugin with the MidoNet plugin. Modern distributed applications have unique networking and security requirements to ensure application availability and performance. It is often a challenge for network administrators to keep up with new infrastructure requests or make changes to support rapid prototyping and continuous delivery. Designed for distributed computing, MidoNet can provide per-tenant network control of the network to create and change network topologies on the fly.
