Veeam has grown its Cloud service provider partner number in Asia-Pacific to 1,230, adding to its total of 41,000 ProPartners worldwide.

Following the vendor's Q2 2016 financial results, the virtualisation specialists said its Asia-Pacific Cloud service provider partner transactions have gone up 49 per cent year-on-year.

As revealed in its financials, the company has enjoyed a strong Q2 2016, with year-on-year (YoY) revenue up 38 per cent globally, and up 33 per cent across Asia-Pacific.

In addition, the company reported a global 40 per cent YoY increase in total bookings revenue from enterprise deals and has surpassed 200,000 paid customers across the business.

Veeam also added 12,500 total paid customers in Q2 2016, which marks an increase over the historical average of about 3500 new customers each month.

"Our penetration into the enterprise market continues to accelerate as they [enterprises] seek to meet the needs of users who are embracing transformative technologies such as Cloud, mobile and social platforms," Veeam chief marketing officer, Peter Ruchatz, said.

"We expanded and strengthened our executive team to continue our journey to a $1 billion company, while also reaching a major milestone – crowning our 200,000th customer. All in all, it has been a fantastic start to 2016."

Veeam most recently appointed Peter McKay as its president and chief operating officer and promoted William Largent as its new CEO.

Ruchatz also attributed the growth to the success of the vendor's Veeam FastSCP for VMware ESX Server, an increase in Microsoft Hyper-V new license bookings, and its Veeam Cloud and Service Provider (VCSP) program.

McKay said what excites Veeam is the extent to which customers are embracing the approach to delivering availability across the enterprise.

“It is a well-known fact that legacy back-up technologies no longer satisfy the needs of modern business," he added.

“Our strategy for the future is clear, and we are continuing to add richer features and functionality to our portfolio which will deliver not only on the needs of today’s users, but provide a foundation for the future."

Veeam said it is on track to meet its goal of becoming a $1 billion company by end 2018 and looks to attract new resellers and VARs to availability solutions.
