VMware to set up $120 m facility in Bangalore

VMware on Monday announced multi-year investment of $120 million that includes a long term lease for a new 4,20,000 square foot building in South Bangalore, currently under construction.

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, US. 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 virtualisation and cloud computing products, all designed to help VMware customers navigate the journey to a new era of IT. Developers in Bangalore and Pune contribute 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.
