Cloud infrastructure and virtualisation software provider VMware has decided to invest $2 billion in India in the next five years. It will help the IT giant to expand its business and research capability.
The company, which is a subsidiary of Dell Technologies has been providing compute, cloud, mobility, networking, and security infrastructure software to businesses in the United States and internationally.
The company already has more than 5,000 employees in the country.
“We are building on the good momentum. We will expand our innovation and R&D and overall business capacity to support our global capability. We will expand our go-to-market capacity to reach more into the marketplace,” said Patrick Gelsinger, CEO, VMware.
The company will now work on building talent to grow its R&D centre and sales teams in Bengaluru, Pune and Chennai.
The company will also hire people for its customer support, information technology and back office teams.
A major part of this investment will go to an HR project with an organisation called Women Who Code which will train 15,000 women in VMware products in the next two years.
The company will also hire some of these women.
