Midokura Recognized for Creating New Opportunities in B2B Cloud Infrastructure as Open Cloud Infrastructures Continue to Gain Traction

SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 17, 2015 –Midokura, a global startup focused on network virtualization, today announced that it has been named to theAlwaysOn OnCloud Top 100 Private Companies list for the “Cloud Infrastructure” category for a third year in a row. Formerly known as the OnDemand 100, this list identifies the top innovative companies developing groundbreaking technologies to bring enterprises into the cloud, including others that join Midokura at the forefront of espousing open cloud technologies.

“Being named among AlwaysOn’s OnCloud Top 100 private companies for the third consecutive year is a testament to Midokura’s continued market and thought leadership, as well as our success with our move to open source ourMidoNetnetwork virtualization overlay technology and delivering on our enterprise offerings,” said Dan Dumitriu, CEO of Midokura. “We are proud to be selected to the list based on factors including innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz, and are happy to see other companies that embrace open technologies join us on this prestigious list.”

In November 2014, Midokura boldly decided toopen source the code behind its award-winning flagship product, MidoNet – today named Midokura Enterprise MidoNet (MEM). MEM is a highly distributed, de-centralized, multi-layer software-defined virtual network solution designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds. The move to open source MEM’s technology as MidoNet was a major step in making cloud accessible to the enterprise, by creating the industry’s first open, vendor-agnostic network virtualization solution. Favored by DevOps cultures from global enterprises, Web scale companies and service providers alike, the open MidoNet community has already seen rapid growth in its first few months.

Midokura is seeing strong continued company momentum marked by new customer wins, partnerships and industry accolades, including the AlwaysOn OnCloud Top 100. To learn more, visit: http://www.midokura.com/press-releases/midokura-embraces-market-devop-culture/
