"Oh, you mean you also wanted to RESTORE your data? That's only with Super Premium Enterprise Doubleplus gud version which you don't have licensing for. Let me get you over to sales."
At what point did HP or HPE ever do that with either of their legacy backup products ? That's right they didn't, and they already sell Veaam direct as part of the HPE Complete program.
So assuming any of this is anything more than a Chris stirring the pot, then why would they want to do that now ?
