VMware Research is a systems research group founded in December 2014, led by David Tennenhouse at the office of the CTO at VMware. Our mission is to bring innovation in computer science in core areas of importance to VMware. Our focus is on large impact research projects, similar to those that are typically published in top system conferences like SOSP, PODC, NSDI, etc. Research is unfettered and at the same time aims to be aligned with VMware's long term business viability.

The researchers of VRG span broad research areas, from architecture/OS/kernel through distributed systems/storage/reliability/security and into algorithms/probabilistic analysis/optimization/randomization.
