MidoNet can be upgraded from 5.0 to 5.2 and from 5.1 to 5.2.
BGP on Interior Ports
In MidoNet 5.1, we introduced router peering allowing to peer routers in different MidoNet deployments. We extended our BGP support to provide routes on interior ports, in particular when using router peering so that the configuration of routes is learned dynamically when created in one location.
VLAN-based Layer 2 Gateway
This release introduces an extension to Neutron that lets you extend a Neutron network into the physical network by mapping a VLAN ID to a network.
It is now possible to log the FW actions (DROPs…); these logs are in particular useful for debugging and audit purposes. They can be collected in standard logging or analytics tools.
MidoNet 5.1 supports VPNaaS, this new versions introduces improvements to the VPNaaS and in particular clever scheduling of the VPN service for better redundancy and planned maintenances.
Memory usage improvements
MidoNet 5.2 introduces several improvements reducing memory usage of the MidoNet agent by 75%.
