So the future looks something like this:
1) Aquire Veeam
2) Rebadge it as HP Veeam Supreme Cream Backup for Virtualisation
3) Sell it for 2-3 years, but bury it amongst the other 10 back-up products
4) Let the innovation stagnate due to corporate interference and fear of product cross-over
4) Realise the mistake, find new target for acquisition
5) Rinse and repeat..
I'm not a fan of Veeam, but even I recognise the impact they had on modernising the backup market.. this is just a bad idea.
