Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Reader Study What a week it's been for mobile communications and productivity! The meltdown of RIM's Blackberry infrastructure and difficulties getting the service back up and running show just how much we are becoming reliant on (or should that be addicted to?) our mobile gadgets and communications services.

Meanwhile, we’ve seen issues cropping up on a regular basis with various online services, be they Office 365 or Amazon Web Services. With all the talk about running applications exclusively in the Cloud, these episodes highlight the dangers of relying totally on a centralized infrastructure for access to applications and services.

When it comes to email and productivity apps, how do these issues affect how you think about buying and deploying them? Is it a storm in a teacup, or does it mean that running email and office apps in the Cloud are now taboo? Tell us at the latest Reg reader survey located here.
