There's a fun game some of us in twitterland play called "Where in the world is Doug Hazelman" (sung to the tune of Carmen Sandiego of course!). Doug is the world-wide senior director of product strategy for all things Veeam. This week, Doug is at Microsoft TechEd where they are announcing Veeam's Next Big Thing. I'm sure you've already read all the reports that the next big thing for Veeam is the ability to do Hyper-V based backups. Gartner has reports that Hyper-V will have about 20% market share by the end of 2012. I personally don't think that will happen because Hyper-V's focus on cloud computing and strategy hasn't made its way to market and the only way they gain customers is not by innovation, but by price point. Microsoft is continually playing catch up to VMware and that has been proven time and time again. This time, Veeam is now giving Hyper-V a new feature to compete against VMware.
