Of course you top the market in the "in use" category. First, you've been selling Avamar for a while and doing quite well against the competition. I don't know what the percentage you have of the source dedupe market, but I wouldn't be surprised if you're leading it. Then you went and bought the hands-down leader in the target space. Between those two moves, of course you own the market.

And backup is SO far from dead. Every time I think we've "fixed" it, something like server virtualization comes along and breaks it again.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
