Basho Opens U.K. Office to Anchor European Operations

London Office Further Enhances Basho's Ability to Capitalize on Growing Global Demand for NoSQL Database and Cloud Storage Software

CAMBRIDGE, MA and LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 06/28/12 -- Basho Technologies, the worldwide leader in distributed database technologies, today announced the opening of a London office. The London presence further enhances Basho's ability to meet and service the growing worldwide demand for Riak, its NoSQL distributed database and for Riak CS, its recently launched cloud storage software platform.

Riak is available open-source and as packaged, supported commercial software with advanced data replication features.

Basho's London office is located in Shoreditch near the popular high-tech district of London, commonly referred to as "Silicon Roundabout."

Don Rippert, Basho's president and CEO, stated, "Basho's London office underscores our commitment to servicing the growing interest in Riak by investing in operations close to our customers. More than 20 percent of all incoming new business opportunities originate from organizations based in Europe, demonstrating the global appeal of our technology. Many companies throughout Europe are already using Riak, including Klarna in Sweden, Mobile Interactive Group (MIG) in U.K., and the Danish Health Service in Denmark."

"Mobile Interactive Group has been a long time Basho customer and proponent of Riak," said Marcus Kern, CTO of MIG. "We are excited that Basho is opening operations close to our own headquarters in London and we look forward to building on our existing relationship as we expand our mobile marketing services and digital communications solutions."

"The opening of our London office is part of Basho's global expansion strategy," continued Rippert. "Demand for distributed database technology is broad-based and growing rapidly. With our strong commitment to open source, we are seeing vibrant communities of Riak customers developing in many local markets worldwide. As businesses embed Riak in strategic applications and cloud platforms, they are asking for local market commitment and support, as well as advanced features. We will continue to aggressively expand to serve the local needs of our rapidly growing customer base."

Basho has been collaborating with London & Partners, the official promotional organization for London, to speed the launch of its European-based operation. Basho's office in London, U.K. is located at 61 Rivington, London, EC2A 3QQ, U.K.

To learn more about Riak, Basho is participating in its second London Meetup on Thursday, July 5, 2012 at Campus, powered by Google. To attend Basho's London Meetup, interested participants should register at http://www.meetup.com/riak-london/events/69174012/.
