VMWare consolidates its India ops; announces $120 kitty

Bangalore, March 26, 2013Global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure,  VMware, has announced a $120 million investment in India over the coming years, the first result being the expansion of its Bangalore  R&D  and support operations into a new  4200 square metre facility.

VMware’s India-based R&D and support operations are second in size and scale only to those at the company’s headquarters located in Palo Alto, California, U.S. Existing facilities in Bangalore will be consolidated into the new state-of-the-art premises, which will seat 2,700 employees when ready next year. The campus will accommodate new and ongoing product R&D, as well as a large staff supporting VMware’s global operations and India’s sales teams.
VMware’s R&D operations in India make a significant contribution to the company’s portfolio of virtualization and cloud computing products, all designed to help VMware customers navigate the journey to a new era of IT. Developers in the Bangalore and Pune centres contribute important components of VMware’s key technologies – the software-defined data center, hybrid cloud and end-user computing.
Visiting Bangalore to announce plans for the new campus, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger said: “India’s world-class IT expertise, impressive talent pool and industrial development make this country crucially important to VMware's global growth strategy. Our investment in this innovative facility demonstrates VMware’s commitment to stay at the cutting edge of technology and evolve the optimum business structure to serve our customers globally.”
He added: “We are also committed to pursuing the huge opportunity for our solutions in India’s fast-growing and maturing market, as companies harness our technology to help them achieve the agility needed to compete in dynamic business arenas at home and overseas.”
VMware established a presence in India in 2005 and today serves about 3,000 customers, employs some 2,000 staff and works with 100 partners. Over the last eight years, offices have been opened in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad and Colombo in Sri Lanka, with R&D centers in Bangalore and Pune.
Earlier this month,
at  a Strategic Forum for Institutional Investors Gelsinger outlined the company’s strategy, including plans to extend the software-defined data centre  with a hybrid cloud service offering, and the creation of a new Hybrid Cloud Services business unit
