Security for virtualized datacentres

Roll up, roll up to the third instalment of The Register’s Good, Bad and Ugly IT Vendor study, where you get the chance to express your views about the purveyors of IT goods and services that you use in your business. Whether you want to praise good performance or castigate failure, now’s the chance to sit down with a cuppa and make those views known to the world.

It's not just vendors either – we also take the opportunity to find out just how relevant (or indeed not) are some of the topics we see in the media. So, if you’re fed up with people banging on about Cloud, or wondering why nobody discusses the real issues you face day to day, do let us know and we will add your views to the mix.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, though do feel free to take a bit longer if you want to express yourself in more detail. The last couple of years have garnered many thousands of responses, and we'll be comparing this year's views against past surveys to see how things are changing.

The survey is awaiting your input right here.

Over the next few weeks, we'll collate, distill and feed back your opinions and experiences. So make sure to check in and find out what your peers are thinking. Last year's responses are available in the Reg Library (no registration required). ®
