Multi-cloud data stack provider DataStax has opened its new regional headquarters in Singapore and made two senior appointments.

Deb Dutta has joined DataStax as general manager of the APAC region from Quadronics, where he served as executive director.

“DataStax continues to see rapid adoption of Cassandra in a form factor which is easy to operate, developer ready, cloud delivered and presents a dramatic reduction in TCO. We recently launched Astra DB, which is the first serverless deployment based on Apache Cassandra that works on all three major public clouds,” said Dutta.

“I am thrilled to join DataStax to help connect developers and enterprises in APAC to the power of Apache Cassandra by engaging, enabling and empowering them."
