Unix servers down by 38.8% in shipment in 1st Q 2013, finds Gartner
The server market has fallen by 0.7 in 1st Q 2013, as per latest study by Gartner. The big fall is for RISC/Itanium Unix servers, whose shipment is down by 38.8% and down by 35.8% on revenue basis in 1st Q 2013 compared to same quarter year ago. The x86 server's revenue is slightly up by 1.8% in 1st Q 2013 compared to same quarter year ago.
Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice president at Gartner says: The only regions to post increases were Asia/Pacific and the United States, with Asia/Pacific showing the strongest growth with shipment and revenue increases of 7 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively. While these two regions grew in both shipments and revenue, it was not enough to offset the declines of the other geographies all of which declined in server shipments and revenue for the quarter.
