MidoNet allows users to build isolated networks in software and overlays the existing network hardware infrastructure. This allows users to create and scale networks with great agility.
The MidoNet Advantage
Works with existing hardware
MidoNet protects investment and avoids vendor lock-in in data centers as it works with any underlying networking hardware.
Improve application deployment time
MidoNet improves the provisioning time of networks from weeks to seconds and provides end users to access applications on-demand and in no time
Improve network scalability
MidoNet’s distributed control architecture and avoidance of a centralized controller allows you to linearly scale your network capability as you add nodes to the network.
Reduce CapEx and OpEx
MidoNet helps avoid buying any additional networking hardware to scale networks and helps manage networks with a single pane of glass.
Dynamically configure networks based on application demand
L3 routing capability allows live VM migration to anywhere in the datacenter as opposed to migration offered at L2 by some vendors that limits VM migration only within the same rack.
Replaces default OVS plugin from OpenStack environments
MidoNet plugin replaces default OVS plugin from OpenStack environments, provides neutron network functions and improves stability, performance and resiliency of networks. Distributed nature of MidoNet plugin avoids single point-of-failure.
