Security for virtualized datacentres

Like many of the major IT players, Veritas has stepped up its presence in China courtesy of a separate corporate entity in the country and a new development center.

Veritas has followed the 2003 creation of a Singapore-based trading company by opening up VERITAS Software (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (VSBC). This wholly foreign-owned company sells Veritas software in China's local currency - Renminbi (RMB) - and speeds the delivery of the products via local channel partners. VSBC is headquartered in the Haidian district of Beijing with a main branch located in the Dong Cheng district of Beijing and three other branches in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu.

“Today we have more than 1,500 employees across 20 offices in 11 countries in the Asia Pacific and Japan region with China being one of the most important markets," said Steven Leonard, SVP and general manager for Veritas' Asia Pacific region business. "As we continue to expand our presence across the region, we anticipate our employee base in China to more than double in the coming three years."

Veritas is also opening up the China Development Center (CDC) in the Haidian district of Beijing. The center officially opens its doors in September and will do work on localizing Veritas software and certifying products. Veritas already has a localized version of its NetBackup storage software and plans to prep Storage Foundation and Cluster Server for China. The center will initially have close to 30 workers.

AMD, Oracle and Sun Microsystems are just some of the major tech players who have recently opened up similar centers in China. ®
