The story of data backup and recovery provider Veeam Software Inc. is about to get much more interesting thanks to two industry game-changers that took place in past months: Dell’s EMC acquisition that included VMware Inc. and VMware’s partnering with Amazon Web Services Inc.Two metrics driving the backup market are Recovery Point Objective, or the amount of data customers can afford to lose, and Recovery Time Objective, or the speed at which they can get applications back up and running. Veeam has built its brand in part by shrinking these numbers, and its Continuous Data Protection announcement (a new disaster recovery as-a-service enhancement) at the show proceeds in this vein.
