Is that a Veeam in HPE's eye? IT giant may gobble backup biz

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.
