VMware opens new Sydney headquarters

200-strong workforce moves in.

VMware has moved around 200 of its employees into new national headquarters in Sydney.

The new headquarters will house the company's Sydney branch and head office functions, as well as some Asia Pacific-focused staff.

A/NZ vice-president and managing director Duncan Bennet said that several R&D groups would continue to work from VMware's existing North Sydney office.

Bennet said VMware now worked with over 8000 customers around Australia, including 98 percent of the ASX 100 and "most" of federal and state government agencies.

"As a company [in Australia], we've only been operational for seven years," he said.

"In that time, we've gone from zero employees to over 300 ...so we've been either the fastest or one of the fastest information technology companies ever,"  Bennet said.

NSW Minister for Finance and Services Greg Pearce congratulated VMware on its commitment to the ICT industry in Australia, paying tribute to its rapid growth and dynamic leadership.

"I look forward to seeing the growth double and triple over the years," Pearce said. 

Bennet said VMware was optimistic about its prospects in Australia and the region.

"We believe we provide tremendous value on the journey to more innovative computing, particularly as the country begins to leverage more and more of the NBN as it rolls out," he said.
