MapR opens in Australia

Melbourne office part of Asia Pacific expansion

MapR Technologies has expanded its presence in the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of a new office in Melbourne.

The opening follows the recent appointment of Justin Bock as A-NZ country manager. The company said it is expanding operations to support growing demand by Australian companies to use big data as a competitive weapon.

The distributor for Apache Hadoop increased its presence in the region significantly in the last six months by establishing an Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore and offices in Japan and Korea.

MapR Technologies Asia Pacific vice president, Martin Darling, said the move to Melbourne was reflective of the interest shown by local companies regarding Hadoop and 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 capitalising on the demand for our products and services in this market.”

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
