Hadoop distribution provider MapR Technologies is expanding itsAsia Pacific presence with the addition of an Australian office in Melbourne. MapR has expanded its footprint in the region during the last 6 months, establishing its Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore and recently opening offices in Japan and Korea.
“Our move to open an office in Melbourne, Australia is reflective of the keen interest that so many companies are expressing about Hadoop and particularly the value of MapR. Having Justin in Australia as country manager and establishing a growing Australian team on the ground means that we are now well equipped to assist our existing customers with their needs while capitalizing on the demand for our products and services in this market,” said Martin Darling, vice president, Asia Pacific, MapR Technologies.
