Security for virtualized datacentres

The paranoid might well be wondering weather (sic) the biblically-proportioned storms that swept across Europe yesterday had anything to do with AMD's mega press bash to announce its plans for DDR memory.

Dozens of hacks from across Europe were heading for Paris when the cataclysmic maelstrom hit. One Reg staffer spent several hours admiring the new décor in the Executive Club lounge at Birmingham Airport before discovering that the airline wasn't flying anywhere until two hours after the press conference ended, so retired to the bar.

A Eurostar high speed train ferrying other UK hacks to the event stopped at Bromley in Kent and refused to go any further.

Those who did make it to Paris were no luckier - Nico Ernst of Tec Channel informs us that he and two other German hacks were forced to spend a character-forming night at Charles de Gaulle airport before finally flying home the next day when the storms abated.

Wonder what weather the Almighty has lined up for 20 November? ®
