  • 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.

  • Work hard, play hard.

    In order to maintain morale, staff are encouraged to explore their personalities outside work. This includes the Take Three program that encourages workers to take a three-month sabbatical to develop a product that complements their everyday work.

  • VMware India R&D lab version 1.0

    Sitting opposite Oracle's offices in the Kalyani tech park, VMware occupies six floors in the building: 1st and 2nd floor are for R&D; 3rd is for operations and sales; 4th, 5th and 9th floors host the company's global support services. However, the company's presence will soon be consolidated in a 3,000 person US$120 million building, being constructed on the other side of Bannerghatta Road (not shown here).
