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.
Welcome to VMware India
The building hosts the company's 800-strong workforce, almost double the number employed two years ago. This figure is expected to grow to 1,000 by year-end. These workers contribute in a range of areas including software defined data center, hybrid cloud and end-user computing.
