  • VMware's India's R&D chief

    Niranjan Maka believes that VMware is just starting out on its journey to transform the computing landscape. Virtualization changed the way that companies utilize their computing power, and he said there's a similar opportunity in the areas of data center and networking. He believes the Indian R&D center will play a big role in this change.

  • The virtual factory floor

    This was the floor that 50 VMware Indian R&D workers developed the vCloud Connector (VCC), which sits at the heart of the recently released vCloud Hybrid Service. The VCC seamlessly transfers a customer's workloads between their private and public cloud assets. Maka said the vCloud Hybrid service was jointly developed by the company's Bangalore and Palo Alto offices.

  • The virtual data center

    This data center was used to simulate how the vCloud Connector, and other products, would work in the real world. It's also where the company develops prototype software products for customers. A bigger data centre will be located in the new US$120 million R&D building.
