Security for virtualized datacentres

Video Over the past few weeks we’ve been asking you about working practices and how they are evolving based on an increasingly distributed workforce. Well, enough writing - this time we've brought film into the equation.

This 30-minute video roundup looks at management and support and how it is impacted by the needs and challenges of a mobile workforce. It may be true that the principles of managing a distributed workforce have changed greatly over the years, but end user expectations most certainly have. With those changes come new challenges, new requirements and a whole new set of issues to contend with.

The Register’s own ever-charming Tim Phillips hosts this video affair, and he’s joined on the leather chairs by Jon Collins from Freeform Dynamics and Rob Sheppard from Intel.

The three of them consider some common-sense lessons from best practice and from Reg reader comments, and they ask how things are evolving as the user base becomes increasingly demanding, in mindsets and in working practices.

It's freely available to watch at your leisure right here. ®
