DataStax Opens New Office in Cork


powering the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud
database built on Apache Cassandra™, announced today the opening of a
new office in Cork, Ireland and expects to create 30 jobs over the next
3 years with 10 of the roles being filled immediately in Finance and IT.

In this data-driven world, DataStax provides the data management layer,
built on Apache Cassandra and designed for hybrid cloud, that powers
every critical aspect of business, from inventory management to customer
experience to supply chain. DataStax customers include some of the
world's best known and biggest brands, and the company is opening its
new office in Ireland to accelerate European expansion and expand its
back-office operations.

Based in Santa Clara, CA, USA DataStax was founded in 2010 and currently
has over 500 employees based in multiple US and international locations.
The move into Ireland is a chance for DataStax to expand its back-office
operations and opens the possibility for attracting a wider range of
talent in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe.

Today's announcement was made by Niall Cotter Sr. Director of Revenue in
the company's Finance organization and Ireland site lead. He stated,
"Our investment in Ireland, and specifically in Cork, is further
reflection of the reputation held by Ireland in terms of the talent and
resources available and will be a key foundation of DataStax's further
growth in both US and international markets."

"This is an incredibly positive move for us and for Ireland. Enterprises
understand the current market imperative to build modern applications
that use data in the moment to positively affect outcomes for their
company. They are coming to us to help build and manage the data
infrastructure behind these business-critical applications in an
increasingly complex, cloud-driven technology landscape," said Robert
O'Donovan, CFO at DataStax. "We're expanding to Ireland to continue to
meet these needs. And, we're excited that our recruiting efforts in Cork
are already underway and that those efforts will expand."

Welcoming the announcement an Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs
and Trade, Simon Coveney T.D said, "Technology is central to the
Government's plans for jobs and growth, and in the past two years we
have added substantial jobs in this area. Today's announcement by
DataStax that they are creating 30 highly skilled jobs in Finance and IT
is a vote of confidence in Cork's business ecosystem."

Commenting on the announcement, Mary Buckley, Executive Director, IDA
Ireland, said, "Cork's tech infrastructure, talent pool, and supportive
academic network have created a compelling business environment which
continues to attract investment from overseas companies in the
technology sector."

The office space currently secured by DataStax is in a Cork city center
location. Roles in the office are being filled immediately in Finance
and IT, in areas such as accounting, revenue, pricing operations, credit
and collections, and security.
