HELSINKI, FINLAND and TAIPEI, TAIWAN — December 8, 2010 — Tuxera Inc., the leading provider of Windows-compatible file systems for Android, Linux, Mac and other platforms, announced today the opening of its new regional headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan. Tuxera’s Asian office will in the first phase serve the company’s growing customer base in semiconductor and electronics industries in Taiwan and other Chinese speaking markets.

“Tuxera’s new office supports the growing number of Taiwan’s chipset, ODM and brand manufacturers with whom we have established Tuxera as the world leader in interoperable file system solutions,” noted Mikko Välimäki, Tuxera CEO. “The office helps us to build closer relationship with all the companies we believe belong to the future of consumer electronics.”

Top-tier Taiwanese manufacturers are today integrating Tuxera’s industry-standard NTFS, exFAT, FAT, HFS+ and other file system solutions in mobile phones, tablets, cameras, DTVs, set-top boxes, routers, and NAS deployments. Tuxera’s patent pending technology and close cooperation with different chipset R&D departments ensures Tuxera can offer the best-in-class read and write performance numbers.
