Sun is itX's main hardware vendor and has been working with the company for almost 11 years.

Laurie Sellers managing director of itX said it is one of the first geographies in the world to have implemented "COSMOS", Sun's on-line configuration tool.

He said it allows resellers to go online, configure Sun's Volume products and obtain a valid configuration and end-user price and request an electronic quote from itX. It also includes on-line ordering.

"Oracle's offer to acquire Sun Microsystems, is viewed by itX with a lot of positive enthusiasm about the future," he said.

"Our relationship with Oracle actually stretches back even further as we were first appointed as their distributor in 1995.

"We perform similar distribution services for them including; managing their resellers, marketing their products, order vetting and processing and credit management.

"We believe that the eventual combination of Oracle and Sun will create a very powerful portfolio of integrated business solutions which ultimately will present tremendous opportunities within the channel," he added.
