HP jumps to #1 supplier of server hardware worldwide
Customers continue to buy more server from HP - more than from any other vendor, as reported by Gartner in first quarter calendar year 2008 figures released Thursday.

With a 30.1 percent total unit shipment share and 29.6 percent vendor revenue share, HP maintained the No. 1 volume position and took over revenue leadership with support from its HP ProLiant, Integrity and BladeSystem lines.

HP ProLiant has led the x86 server market during every quarter reported by Gartner.

In addition, HP claimed the top spot in worldwide x86, Intel Itanium and blade server units and revenue. HP also led in the combined units and revenue for UNIX, Microsoft Windows and Linux-based servers.

The company grew UNIX revenue more than twice as fast as its closest competitors combined and had strong UNIX growth in both India and China as these markets build out their infrastructures.

The Enterprise Storage and Servers unit, responsible for 17 percent of HPís income in the second quarter of fiscal 2008, recorded 4 percent year-over-year growth with revenue of $4.8 billion. This achievement was driven by a 68 percent gain in HP BladeSystem server sales.

The blades market continues to ramp quickly as both enterprise and midsize customers adopt the technology. Gartnerís figures show that HP held 52.9 percent vendor revenue and 46.3 percent units shipped for the first quarter of calendar year 2008.

HP recently acquired services company EDS.
