Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Well, the deadline has passed for our Register corporate anthem competition. And what a bulging sack of lyrical excellence we have received. From emotive power-chord driven anthems to rousing martial themes - you name it, we've got it.

The results will have to wait until next week while we dust off our twelve-string guitars and work methodically through the back catalogue.

Geddout of bed! Geddout of bed!
