You and Andrei (pictured) have had a long relationship. Prior to Veeam, you two co-founded Aelita, which was eventually sold to Quest Software. Do you expect the two of you to work together on future ventures?

Yeah, absolutely yes. We've been friends since 1985 when we were roommates. We started doing business together in 1995 at our first company, which was called Aelita Software. We started in in the 1997 time period, and we sold it to Quest Software. I mean, we're just trusted business partners. So I respect him for his genius and I believe he is a 'Steve Jobs' of technology management. He's absolutely a genius technologist as well as a genius business person. So I respect him for what he is, and he respects me for what I am like in terms of a sales and marketing genius. So he is a technology genius and I'm kind of a sales marketing guru. We're just trusted partners, and I expect that we will continue coming up with ideas. But right now, still our focus is Veeam, and making a successful transition in the next few months.
