Virtualisation powerhouse, VMware, has opened its second Australian office in Melbourne.
The vendor has about 35 staff operating in Victoria, but previously it worked out of serviced offices.
VMware Australia and New Zealand managing director, Paul Harapin, said an 'official' office would help facilitate growth into the future, and improve morale among workers.
"We have no specific growth targets, but Sydney and Melbourne are our two biggest markets at a Government level and in terms of leading commercial businesses," Harapin said.
Although the vendor has headcount in every Australian state, it has a tipping point that needs to be reached before establishing a new office is economically viable, he said.
Of the Australian cities, Brisbane has VMware's next largest presence. Wellington in New Zealand would be the next likely candidate for an office, Harapin said.
