According to Jeffrey Hausman, senior director of product management for Symantec said the company will open a Security Operations Centre on its Green Park campus in Reading next week.

Over a lunch at the cavernous press room in The Ventian Resort in Las Vegas, Hausman told ZDNet UK that the centre would complement other Symantec SOCs around the globe.

Symantec's OC used to be in a decomissioned nuclear bunker near Winchester, in the south downs.

I'm hoping to go and take a look at the new one -- with some photos -- watch this space.

Meanwhile, the ceilings in the Venetian Resort seem to defy physics. There are no supporting walls under a flat ceiling with an area the size of three football fields, in the Keynote Hall. Above the ceiling there is a massive hotel that contains, among other things, a canal. With gondoliers. Who sing "O Sole Mio" every five minutes.

Las Vegas is just crazy.
