What's happening in server sales?
Posted on 29-Aug-2013 15:13 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


ServersCustomers are buying slightly more servers, but paying a little less for them according to the latest research from Gartner.

The company says while the global server market is weak, our region, Asia-Pacific, is the bright spot. Regional server revenue is up ten percent while shipments in the region climbed 22 percent.

IBM takes the most money from the server market accounting for a roughly 26 percent share of the money slightly ahead of HP on 25 percent. Dell is in third place with around 18 percent.

IBM’s System z is the top money-spinner. It’s a higher value server which explains why when it comes to unit numbers, HP is number one with 24 percent closely followed by Dell on 22 percent. IBM is a long way behind with just 8.5 percent of units shipped.

Despite stories circulating about Oracle’s lack of success with hardware since buying Sun Microsystems, the company’s revenue share remained much the same as a year earlier.

Other established server makers faced a challenge from new players including Cisco which saw a 43 percent jump in server revenues. Other newcomers taking market share include Huawei and Lenovo.
