Expands global presence in big data market with two partnerships

MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, today announced the establishment of MapR Technologies, Inc. in Japan headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. It has also entered into partnership agreements with systems integrators NS Solutions Corporation and Nautilus Technologies, Inc. to resell MapR’s Distribution for Hadoop and NoSQL in the region. More than fifteen leading businesses in Japan have already purchased the MapR Distribution, including Recruit Technologies, Inc.

“MapR’s Hadoop technology is well ahead of industry standards, and is an indispensable technology to cope with Big Data processing,” said Takenori Otsubo, company executive of NS Solutions, Inc. “Though there are abundant technology solutions in the market, we can offer this solution as a reliable, speedy and comprehensive management suite which will be in high demand in Japan.”

According to Takashi Kanbayashi, CEO of Nautilus Technologies, Inc., “We enthusiastically welcome MapR’s entrance into Japan. The establishment of a Japan office combined with its superior performance, reliability and ease of use will enable the highest-levels of customer support in the Japanese market.”

“MapR is pleased to work with NS Solutions and Nautilus Technologies, organizations with excellent reputations that share our commitment to delivering only the highest quality solutions to enterprise customers,” said Steve Fitz, senior vice president, worldwide field operations, MapR Technologies. “We believe our platform for Hadoop and NoSQL has enormous potential for adoption in this vibrant and growing market as evidenced by Recruit Technologies’ successes to date.”

The opening of the Japan office comes on the heels of other office openings around the globe earlier this year including London, England; Munich, Germany; Paris, France; and Stockholm, Sweden.
