Windows servers close the gap with UNIX

Posted on Sunday, May 29 2005 @ 00:09:14 CEST by

Worldwide computer server shipments grew 5.3 percent to $12.1 billion in the first quarter of the year. For the first time revenue of Microsoft Windows based servers equalled the revenue of servers based on UNIX.

Revenue of Unix servers grew 2.8 percent to $4.2 billion in Q1 2005 while unit shipments increased with 5 percent. The Windows server market grew 12.3 percent to $4.2 billion in the same period while unit shipments grew 10.7 percent.

Jean Bozman, vice president of Enterprise Computing says the equal level of spending in both segments shows Windows servers are gaining traction in the enterprise server space with a combination of deeper investment and richer configuration.

Sales of Linux based servers increased 35.2 percent to $1.2 billion. HP is the number one in the Linux server market with a share of 27.7 percent, followed by IBM at 19.8.

Market research firm IDC reports the overall server revenue grew for the eight consecutive quarter as customers invest further in new server infrastructure. The growth has slowed however, with a unit shipment growth of 13.5 percent being the lowest point in two years.
