Server Shipments Rise, But Not Significantly, Says Gartner

@ 2004/12/05
Worldwide server revenue surpassed $11.8 billion in the third quarter of 2004, a 6% increase from the third quarter of 2003, according to Gartner. The research firm shows x86 processors gain and RISC systems decline trend during the last 12 months.

“The server market is still being primarily driven by the x86 segment. That, along with the acceptance of Linux in additional application areas in the enterprise space will continue to drive demand,” said Mike McLaughlin, principal analyst for Gartner.
