Mitsui on the outer at SunSoft

Mitsui on the outer at SunSoft

i.t.conneXions (ITX) has picked up the distribution rights for SunSoft products, replacing former distributor Mitsui. The products give ITX more pull as a specialist in "alternative" (or non-Wintel) products.

ITX had been a major Microsoft distributor until last year, when the two companies parted ways.

Now its line-up comprises mainly Unix, Trend Micro, Watchguard and Netscape products.

Former SunSoft distributor Mitsui will retain distribution of Sun Microsystems hardware. A spokesperson for Mitsui says it was "surprised and disappointed" by SunSoft's move.

Laurie Sellers, ITX's managing director, said: "We're currently picking up Mitsui customers and paving the way for more Mitsui resellers to open accounts with us."

A spokesperson for Mitsui said that company would endeavour to help its channel partners make the move from Mitsui to ITX.

The SunSoft contract brings a number of products to ITX, including Solaris and Solarium, the popular Firewall One, backup software Legato and, of course, all the Java derivatives. The change becomes official in mid-March.
