DataStax launches into Europe, Middle East and AfricaApril 5, 2013 No Comments
Today we announced DataStax EMEA, which offers sales, marketing and support services for DataStax Enterprise, our Apache Cassandra-based big data platform throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
DataStax has quickly expanded over the past two years, growing from 26 employees and 27 customers at the end of 2011 to approaching 100 employees and 270+ customers by the end of 2012 along with many thousands of organizations and individuals working with open source Cassandra.
We had some fun with the press this week and they seemed to like the story…
With a strong base of customers in the EMEA region combined with the exceptional demand from the Cassandra community the opening of an EMEA subsidiary headquartered in London to support this demand was a natural next step.
We have also seen strong interest from system integrators, solution providers and consultants in the region and working with this partner ecosystem is a key component of our go-to-market and customer services plan.
Here are some things you can do immediately if you have an interest in Cassandra:
