Cloudera to invest £50 million into India in next two years

The company is also opening a newly expanded Centre of Excellence facility in Bengaluru

Cloudera is planning on investing up to £50 million into India over the next two years to help it take advantage of the Asia Pacific region, one of its fastest-growing markets.

The company added that the investment will help support the delivery of the hybrid data cloud and the money will accelerate product innovation, cloud transformation, and drive customer growth.

At the same time, Cloudera is opening its revamped and newly expanded Centre of Excellence (CoE) facility in Koramangala, Bengaluru. Cloudera said that over the last few years it has recruited Indian talent in product engineering and development. The new hires, along with the entire Cloudera India workforce, were working remotely during the pandemic. Now, they will work from the new facility in Bengaluru.

The hybrid data cloud company also plans to continue hiring in engineering and product development roles over the next few years to support the growth of its CoE facility in India. At the time of writing, the company has 26 open positions for workers in Bengaluru, with several roles being advertised including engineering manager, software engineer, DevOps engineer, and cloud solutions architect.

"The Asia Pacific Region is one of the fastest-growing markets for Cloudera and investments in India have helped the company tremendously with both product delivery and customer adoption," said Sudhir Menon, chief product officer at Cloudera.

"The new Centre of Excellence builds on Cloudera's stellar track record delivering some of the most successful open-source products in the history of software, from India, and we look forward to turbo charging those contributions as leaders in the hybrid data cloud."

The company said that the core capabilities driven out of the Bengaluru facility include public cloud, software development, product security, data warehousing, machine learning, data engineering, quality and site reliability engineering, release engineering, infrastructure and tools development, programme management, and information security.

"India is an extremely important market with great talent and we've been making significant investments to grow Cloudera's presence in the country. The opening of this CoE facility in Bengaluru, along with our Chennai office earlier this week, is a testament to this," said Indiresh Vivekananda, country head of R&D and operations at Cloudera India.

Cloudera joins several companies that are investing in India and hiring local talent. Earlier this week, Fujitsu launched a new AI research centre in Bengaluru after it identified the country as being a leader in AI talent. The centre is set to focus on research and development into AI and machine learning technologies as well as quantum software.
