Security for virtualized datacentres

PC Data has published its listing for the top 100 Web properties and sites for May 1999 and Yahoo! tops both categories. The Virginia-based company tracks the number of "unique visitors" who either go to a Web site or a Web property -- defined as a network of related sites. Every visitor is counted only once, regardless of how many times the individual visits a site. Here, The Register prints the top 10 in each category.
