Raghu Raghuram


Chief Operating Officer, Product and Cloud Services

If VMware hires internally, Raghu Raghuram is the top candidate alongside VMware’s Poonen for the company’s CEO position. Raghuram has been with VMware for a whopping 17 years, serving in various general manager (GM) and executive vice president (EVP) roles, including GM of cloud infrastructure and management, as well as EVP and GM of VMware’s software defined data center division. Raghuram is currently chief operating officer, responsible for all of VMware’s product and service offerings as well as centralized services, support and operational functions.

“The areas he runs at VMware, COO of the cloud services -- assuming the future for VMware is the cloud and the network -- Raghu would make a lot of sense,” said Kerravala..

He began his career at VMware in 2003 running product management for VMware ESX and what became a flagship VMware product: vSphere. Raghuram, alongside Poonen, are the two executives who lead VMware’s quarterly financial earnings report following Gelsinger’s departure.
