MidoNet is developed by the MidoNet project that enables cloud operators to build, operate and manage virtual networks at scale. While the GUI-based management features and big data analytics are part of the commercial version, the features enabling core network virtualization capabilities will always be part of the MidoNet.


MEM is built on the MidoNet and adds value in the form of management and analytic tools along with enterprise-class support. We like to think of MEM as the finely-tuned package of advanced software, support, and services that is designed for the modern enterprise and web services companies.
