American software company MapR has chosen to base its European headquarters in the UK.

Its London site, which will open its doors on January 3, will provide the Hadoop technology leader with a base to enable it to support its customers across the continent.

John Schroeder, MapR Technologies CEO and Co-Founder, said: “There has been phenomenal Hadoop demand across Europe for our performance, unprecedented dependability and ease of use advantages. Our European expansion is a response to our strong customer growth and partner momentum.”

The London headquarters will help MapR support existing deals in place with the likes of EMC, Google, Cisco and Amazon and system intergartion partners across Europe.

Speaking to Techworld, Jack Norris, MapR's Vice-President of Marketing, revealed that MapR's Hadoop technology could be used by any company, regardless of the system being used. In the past, specialised application programming interfaces woud have to be used.

He said: “What MapR did was change the underlying data layer to also support standard NFS (Network File System), so existing tools and existing information sources can be used directly with the Hadoop platform.”

On Friday, MapR showed off its technology at the Big Data Analytics 2012 show in London.
