EMC to invest $100 million in India

The data storage company aims to reinforce the software development facility that it set up in India earlier this year.

Storage maker EMC plans to invest $100 million in its operations in India over the next five years.

The money will be spent to strengthen the company's software development center set up at Bangalore in January, as well as to expand sales and customer operations, company officials announced in India this week.

The Indian development and support center is designed to initially perform software maintenance and support activities for many of the company's open software product offerings. Gradually it will be expanded to contribute to the development of a full range of EMC storage software products, the company said.

The data storage giant has been working hard to broaden its reputation as a viable provider of storage software. Its acquisition of Legato Systems, a maker of backup and recovery software, was a part of this strategy.

An EMC spokesperson said the center is part of the company's development and support facilities that include R&D facilities in the United States; Cork, Ireland; Brussels, Belgium; and Kawasaki, Japan.
