Appirio is well on its way to accelerating its own international expansion following a major round of venture capital funding that resulted in $60 million in Series D funding.
For reference, Appirio is self-described as a cloud "accelerator," which provides services and support to enterprises subscribing to cloud applications and platforms from the likes of Salesforce.com, Google and Workday.
Since launching in 2006, Appirio has helped more than 1.5 million customers move to the public cloud to date. The next-generation technology services provider also now has offices in the United States, Japan, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
This latest round was led primarily by General Atlantic, with participation from existing investors Sequoia Capital and GGV Capital.
With the additional financial resources, Appirio is gearing up to support both the global expansion of its consulting practice areas along with advancing awareness and features for the crowd-sourcing development platform, CloudSpokes.
The CloudSpokes developer program, which has already attracted more than 30,000 developers on six continents, celebrated its one-year anniversary in February.
Appirio has been expanding considerably in the last few months. In December, Appirio acquired Salesforce.com-integrator Saaspoint to lead its foray into Europe.
