Job Description The Monitor Group is part of our Core Platform Group which is responsible for our Core Virtualization Infrastructure.
We are looking for talented and highly motivated individuals to join the world-class virtual machine monitor group, which is responsible for the CPU virtualization technology in VMware products. You will have the opportunity to work with bleeding edge CPU technology on projects such as binary translation, VT-x/EPT, AMD-V/RVI, interrupt virtualization, memory virtualization/management, and dynamic code instrumentation.
This individual must possess a very deep understanding of processor architecture and the low-level OS kernel internals, including memory management, resource management, and interrupt architecture.
VMware believes that the addressable market opportunity for its virtualization solutions is large and expanding. IDC estimates that less than one million of the 25+ million x86 servers and less than five million of the 500+ million business client PCs deployed worldwide are running virtualization software. VMware believes industry trends toward more powerful yet underutilized multi-core servers and the increasing complexity of managing desktop environments will further accelerate the widespread adoption of virtualization for both server and desktop deployments.
