Software-defined networking companyMidokura this week rolled out a new release of its network virtualization software which supports the latest OpenStack release, and containers.
The latest release of Midokura’s Enterprise MidoNet (MEM) software, which is designed for Infrastructure-as-a-Service clouds, supports OpenStack Liberty. Liberty features enhanced support for VMs and containers.
MEM serves as a Neutron plug-in to OpenStack Liberty. MEM also supports OpenStack Kilo and Juno.
For container support, MEM supports the OpenStack Kuryr container plug-in. Kuryr is the gateway between the container networking APIs and use cases, and the Neutron APIs and services, Midokura says. It bridges the gaps between Docker networking and OpenStack Neutron networking, the company says, and allows mixing and matching of container-based and OpenStack virtual workloads.
A Midokura software engineer is one of the project leaders for Kuryr.
The latest version of MEM is available now. Midokura is offering a free 30-day software evaluation that includes 24/7 support, documentation, hardened packages and the MidoNet Manager GUI.
