I am curious about the happenings in the Data Protection Market.  Last week, Cohesity as listed as the Gold winner with Rubrik and StorageCraft as honorable mentions.  This week it looks like Cohesity is gone and Rurik and StorageCraft are "co-winners".  Also it seems Rubrik's version changed from 3.0 to 2.3.  Can any details be provided about what happened in this category?
