IDC on server shipments in Q3 2003

Growth: Server sales gre by 2% in Q3 2003 YTY. Worldwide server revenue, which includes the costs of server hardware, operating systems and initial storage shipments, reached US$10.8 billion, up from $10.6 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Top vendors: IBM, HP, Sun, Dell and Fujitsu. IBM Corp. retained its lead of the server market, with a 31.1% market share on revenue of $3.4 bil. Hewlett-Packard Co. was second, with 27.7% on $3 bil in revenue, followed by Sun Microsystems Inc. and Dell Inc., with 10.8% and 9.5% of the market, on sales of $1.17 bil and $1.03 bil, respectively.

OS: Sun was the hardest hit by the decline in Unix spending. Its market share dropped by 9.3% from the same quarter in 2002. Strong growth in the Linux market, which grew by 50%, took its toll on Sun. Windows server sales also grew at a respectable pace, increasing by 10% from the previous year and slightly exceeding IDC’s expectations for the quarter. When measured by the number of units shipped, Windows remained far ahead of Linux, with 841,000 Windows servers shipped in the quarter, compared to 210,000 Linux boxes.

Overall, unit shipments grew a surprising 19.5%, reflecting solid demand for small servers priced less than $25,000. Revenues from those systems grew 9.5%, while sales of midrange systems, $25,000 to $499,999, increased by 7%. Revenue from servers priced more than $500,000 declined by 14%.

Gartner: Server shipments up 20% in Q3

Vendors shipped a total of 1.37 million units in the quarter, the Stamford, Connecticut, market research firm said. Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) led the way with 408,290 units shipped worldwide, a 21% increase over its total shipments in last year’s third quarter. Dell Inc. shipped 276,350 units worldwide in the third quarter, up 28% from last year. IBM Corp. came in third place with 220,083 units, up 36% over last year’s third-quarter total. Sun Microsystems Inc. continued to lose ground, shipping 59,692 units in the quarter, down 2.9% from last year’s third quarter.

IDC: Server OS Survey

Согласно опубликованному сегодня отчету аналитической фирмы IDC, по итогам прошедшего года доля Microsoft Windows на рынке серверных операционных систем (исходя из числа новых лицензий) достигла 55,1% (в сравнении с 50,5% в 2001 г.). На втором месте идет Linux — 23,1%, на третьем Unix (все реализации) — 11%, на четвертом NetWare — 9,9%. Общее количество лицензий на серверные ОС, проданных по итогам 2002 г., оказалось равным 5,7 млн.

IDC: Blade server shipments up

IDC estimates worldwide blade server shipments will balloon 342 percent between 2002 and 2003. IDC said that 35 percent of all servers sold in the United States to be blade form factors, snowballing to a $6 billion market by 2007.

Storage revenue edges downward

The worldwide disk storage market saw both gains and losses in the second quarter of 2003, according to market researcher IDC.

Global revenue declined to $4.73 billion in the second quarter, down slightly from $4.8 billion in the first quarter and down 3.9 percent compared with the second quarter of 2002. Revenue fell despite 36 percent year-over-year growth in storage capacity to 181.6 petabytes shipped during the second quarter. (One petabyte is equal to a million gigabytes.)

“We saw significant declines in Asia, particularly in Japan,” John McArthur, group vice president of storage research at IDC, said in a statement. “The results are decidedly mixed, providing no indication of a near-term, global recovery in the disk storage systems market.”

Linux, blades the high spots in server market

The worldwide server market was worth US$10.6 billion in the second quarter of 2003, a scant 0.2 percent higher than in the same quarter last year, according to revenue figures released Friday by IDC.

The market for servers based on standard Intel Corp. architecture has now overtaken the commercial Unix server market, growing 10.7 percent to reach revenue of $4.46 billion. Unix server sales dropped 5.2 percent from the year-earlier period for revenue of $4.3 billion, according to IDC.

The market for Linux-based servers grew at 39.5 percent year-on-year to reach $650 million, while blade server revenue reached $119 million, almost eight times more than in the second quarter of 2002.

The shifting market was reflected in the varying fortunes of the leading vendors. IBM Corp. took over from Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) as the leading server vendor overall following 10.1 percent year-on-year revenue growth compared with HP’s 0.4 percent growth.

Although HP leads IBM in each of the three main Intel-standard, Unix and Linux markets, IBM still gains considerable sales from proprietary server hardware such as the iSeries, giving it overall market leadership.

Sun Microsystems Inc. saw sales fall by 18.7 percent over the year and is being challenged for its third position by Dell Inc., whose sales grew 10 percent over the year, according to IDC figures.

IBM Retakes No. 1 Worldwide Computer Server Spot

International Business Machines Corp. (IBM.N) reclaimed the top market share spot among computer server companies worldwide during the second quarter, pushing Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ.N) back into the No. 2 position, according to market research firm IDC.

IBM, which makes everything from computers based on Intel Corp. (INTC.O) microprocessors to giant mainframe systems that use proprietary semiconductor technology, had 30.4 percent of global server systems revenue during the quarter.

HP, which held the No. 1 spot last quarter, had 27.7 percent of total revenues.

The overall server market was $10.616 billion in revenues, a slight increase from a year earlier’s $10.597 billion.
