Following Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems, it's understood that former Sun channel manager Gary de Menezes has been named as sales director for the newly-named Oracle Hardware.

IT-Online understands that De Menezes will be responsible for the recently-merged company's hardware sales within the southern Africa region.
De Menezes is well known in the South African IT industry, particularly in the channel, which he has looked after for Compaq, HP, Acer and Lenovo.
The new Oracle Hardware is made up mostly of the server, storage and networking products from the Sun Microsystems stable.
