20% Jump In Server Sales For HP As They Look To Exit PC Market
Dell was in second place with 10,157 shipments, up 16 percent, to take 30.3 percent of the market. IBM was third with 4647 units shipped and 13.9 percent of the market by shipments.
In terms of revenue H-P was also No. 1 performer with revenue of US$96.6 million, up 12.1 percent. (Gartner gives it figures for all markets in US dollars).
But IBM was second with revenue of $69.6 million – up a huge 60.4 percent on its Q2 2010 figure. Dell was in No. 3 spot with $42.85 million.
The big loser was fourth place Oracle, down 38.4 percent in unit terms to 844,000, and down 31.9 percent in revenue, dropping from $38.8 million to $26.4 million.
Cisco scored an impressive 347 percent rise in shipments – from 153 to 685 – to tie down fifth spot, though still with only 2.1 percent of the Australian market.
Overall the Australian market was up 17.4 percent in the quarter in unit terms at 33,489 units, and 19.8 percent in revenue at $249.27 million.
That was below the overall Asia-Pacific server market, which rose 25.6 percent in shipments and 26.1 percent in revenue for the quarter. On the other hand it was well ahead of the worldwide experience of just 8 percent growth in shipments, Gartner reports.
“We saw Asia-Pacific as the strongest region for server shipment growth during the second quarter of 2011,” said Erica Gadjuli, principal research analyst at Gartner. She said the biggest growth came from China, where Internet companies continued to build up their cloud infrastructure.
