Security for virtualized datacentres

Paul and Aaron Goodman-Simpson - the brothers behind British ISP CallNet - are set to return to the Internet industry following their acrimonious split from the company last year.

The Register understands they're set to launch another ISP as early as 1 February having recently purchased a small-ish service provider for a six-figure sum.

Once source claims the new ISP will offer a "range of subscription-free and access packages with some innovative features such as a family-oriented videoconferencing service".

In August shareholder pressure forced CallNet - which had offered unmetered Net access - to restructure the board. The Goodman-Simpsons plus CTO Keith Goodyer were ejected and replaced.

In September, CallNet was put up for sale and bought by E-Tel Ventures a month later. ®
