John, I feel this conversation is going nowhere, and to fix this I suggest we do a simple exercise and virtually swap our seats for a moment.
I am sure you understand we can't deliver all integrations at once, right? So I am curious - if you were Veeam CEO and had 30 storage vendors to prioritize for advanced integration, what metrics would you look for to help you decide in what order to deliver those integrations? Keeping in mind your main goals at Veeam as a CEO.
And the second question is, how would you explain to your customers that this metric you chose is not any sort of "special treatment"?
