John Varel, CEO & Chairman of FusionStorm, stated, "Where other Sun and Oracle partners, who lack expertise in both company's technologies are lost in the transition, FusionStorm naturally evolves to an integrated, seamless solution." Varel added, "Oracle's acquisition of Sun fits perfectly within FusionStorm's existing strategy, engineering practices, customer support and account management. We will help increase client satisfaction by bridging the technology stack."
