With an enhanced line of products like Hybrid Cloud which gives customers the full software-defined data centre (SDDC) experience, VMware will soon have a much broader coverage in India, a top executive of the company — a leader in cloud infrastructure and mobility — said here on Tuesday.
“VMware has been a very strong player in the enterprise space. We have covered the small and medium businesses (SMBs) market strategically and for us. It is not only tier I cities as we wish to cover tier II and tier III cities as well,” Arun Kumar Parameswaran, Managing Director of VMware India, told IANS on the sidelines of the annual “vFORUM 2016” event here.
When asked about the Dell-VMware alignment and leveraging Dell’s sound penetration into India’s SMB market, Parameswaran said: “As per a recent International Data Corporation (IDC) report, we have seen a lot of activity in terms of server and PC shipments in India. Dell has been a good partner for us. With our new products and technologies, you will soon see a much broader coverage in India.”
According to Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, the company has good collaboration with Dell-EMC and they have committed to accelerate VMware’s revenue to billions of dollars.
VMware also announced the acquisition of Arkin Net, a leader in software-defined data centre security and operations at the event.
The California-based company registered $6.6 billion revenue last year and has more than 500,000 customers and 75,000 partners.
In the second quarter of 2016, VMware made announcements to further innovate its business mobility strategy and product offerings, including a new end-point security solution powered by Tanium — “VMware TrustPoint” — that delivers an integrated solution for unified endpoint management and security.
