Veeam: nice guys still finish first

I just left ’s analyst summit (in Napa, which is fantastic). Normally I don’t do analyst days (as we have legitimately smart analysts who do them), but I wanted to know more about this company who successfully latched on to the movement and never let go. Plus, did I mention it was in Napa?
