Security for virtualized datacentres

AOL UK is to start trialing BT's ADSL technology in the late autumn, a company spokeswoman confirmed today. The launch of the national trials to provide high speed, flat-rate access should also enable the OSP to introduce flat-rate pricing for those taking part in the trial. Despite the expected high cost of the service, it should bring AOL UK another step closer to its European goal to 'stop the clock' on high local call charges for Internet access, the company said. "We plan to deliver the AOL experience to multiple PC and non-PC devices and will be making further announcements this year," said Andreas Schmidt, President and CEO of AOL Europe. AOL in Germany has recently concluded tests and similar moves in the US appear to progressing well, a spokeswoman said. ®
