VMware APJ posts 81 percent growth in Q2

VMware has recorded 81 percent growth in the Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region during the second quarter of 2010, compared with the same period last year. This is the first time VMware has broken out regional figures so last year's results were unavaliable.

Australia New Zealand, Japan and China recorded Q2 growth of 71 percent, 97 percent and 94 percent while India grew by 70 percent.

ANZ posted country growth rates of 54 percent for Q1.

VMware Asia Pacific senior vice president and general manager Andrew Dutton says most growth is being generated by its VSphere virtualisation platform.

“We see strong demand from enterprises deploying private cloud infrastructure, as well as increasing traction from service providers building public cloud services.”

He adds that VMware recently extended the company’s cloud platform strategy through partnerships with Google and Salesforce.com.

VMware’s global revenues for the second quarter were US$674 million, an increase of 48 percent from the second quarter of 2009.

The company also increased APJ regional headcount by more than 45 percent over the last 12 months and its regional partner list stands at 4000.
