MidoNet gains as the OpenStack network driver of choice for large scale clouds

MidoNet gains as the OpenStack network driver of choice for large scale clouds, surpassing Cisco and Juniper OpenContrail

The OpenStack community has spoken. Designed for large scale clouds, MidoNet is the leading 3rd party networking plug-in for OpenStack deployments, ahead of Cisco and Juniper OpenContrail.

OpenStack’s ninth User Survey reports the technology choices, use cases and business drivers for more than 1,300 users, nearly 600 deployments from 78 countries, and input from 22 percent more organizations than one year ago.


Which OpenStack Networking (Neutron) drivers are in use?

A year ago in the April 2016 survey, Juniper OpenContrail received 14% of the answers to the same question. However, this year, Juniper OpenContrail seems to have fallen off the charts.

Midokura has been an active contributor into OpenStack since the Bexar release and has been serving on Neutron core reviewer team since the Liberty cycle.  OpenStack operators can use open source MidoNet at no charge which contains all of the core features under Distributed Services, Security and Advanced Services. MidoNet keeps pace with the latest Neutron features and supports OpenStack Liberty, Newton and Ocata releases.

Customers using our commercial Midokura Enterprise MidoNet edition receive management, analytics and monitoring tools and 24/7 round the clock support with pre-defined SLAs.


Just like OpenStack where 74% of the deployments are located outside of the US, MidoNet is a vibrant global community and needs your support! The results of the survey is a testament that open source is the de-facto model for widespread technology adoption.

The OpenStack User Survey is now open again. The OpenStack user survey is a powerful vehicle to voice your feedback to the development teams to improve OpenStack and MidoNet.
