VMware Projects to invest up to $500 mn in India

US-based technology giant VMware on Wednesday said it plans to invest up to $500 million (Rs 3,018 crore) in India over the next three years to fund its growing operations.

The company’s R&D and support operations in India are second in size and scale only to those at VMware’s headquarters in California. In 2013, headcount in India grew 17 per cent to 2,300, while the recent acquisition of AirWatch added employees in Bangalore.


“India continues to play a crucial role in our global product roadmap and growth strategy. The country’s outstanding engineering talent continues to impress us, and we stay committed to investing and growing our team here over the long term,” VMWare CEO Pat Gelsinger said in a statement.


Investments earmarked will also enable VMware to further strengthen its leadership position in India’s fast maturing virtualisation and cloud computing market, he added.
