Midokura Integrates with Ubuntu OpenStack

Midokura has integrated its flagship, enterprise network virtualization platform technology with Ubuntu OpenStack.

Juju is an open source service modeling and deployment tool, led by Canonical. Via Charms, Juju lets you design, deploy, connect and scale services for solutions of any size. The Midokura Juju Charm is immediately available in the Charm Store -- a collection of Charms that have been tested and approved by Canonical.

"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."

Separately,Midokura released Neutron plug-ins supporting OpenStack Liberty. The new release is also designed to advance container networking with the new Kuryr project, which integrates directly with native container networking components, such as libnetwork. Kuryr is the gateway between the container networking APIs and use cases, and the Neutron APIs and services. It bridges the gaps between Docker and Neutron and will drive the changes necessary to fill in the missing pieces in Neutron.
