Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Motorola is to create another 1,000 jobs in Scotland, making it one of the country's biggest employers. The company will add the jobs to its mobile phone plant near Edinburgh as part of a £50 million expansion. This will bring its number of employees at the facility to 4,000 and in the whole of Scotland to 7,500. It will boost production from the Easter Inch factory by 50 per cent. Motorola said the move was due to surging world demand for its handsets. According to Donald Dewar, Scotland's first minister, Motorola contributes £549 million a year to the country's economy. The phone giant claimed its three factories in the area accounted for 10 per cent of Scottish exports and was worth more than four per cent of its economic output. It described the investment as: "A testament to the quality of our workforce here in Scotland". ®
