Midonet packet processing

The few slides below from Midokura account on show the internal architecture design and packet processing that is happening whey you deploy Midonet as a cloud virtualization engine.
  • Midonet is based on an IP overlay concept 

  • By implementing in IP encapsulation it can provide tenant isolation and more advance features

  •  By pushing the intelligence to the edge of the network (like hypervisors) it can handle the packet forwarding efficiently with out having to consult the with any external system
  • All Midonet processes built a single logical distributed system within each single Midonet node is capable of finding and implementing the right action for a packet
  •  As an example if VM tries to communicate with a peer that doesn't belong to the tenant the verification can be done at the edge without having to sent the packet out
