HP numero uno in worldwide server shipments

28 May 2008

Hewlett Packard (HP) has grabbed number one position in Worldwide Server Shipments and Revenue for First Quarter of 2008. According to a report by Gartner, customers have endorsed HPís worldwide server leadership by buying more servers from the company than any other vendor during the first quarter calendar year. With a 30.1 percent total unit shipment share and 29.6 percent vendor revenue share, HP maintained first slot in volume and took over revenue leadership with support from its HP ProLiant, Integrity and BladeSystem lines. HP ProLiant has led the x86 server market during every quarter reported by Gartner.

HP has also emerged as market leader in worldwide sales of x86, Intel itanium and blade server units. It has gained leading slot in the combined units and revenue for UNIX, Microsoft Windows and Linux-based servers. UNIX revenue of HP has doubled comparing with its closest competitors combined. The Indian and Chinese markets had helped in increasing UNIX growth. The Enterprise Storage and Servers unit has been responsible for 17 percent of HPís income in the second quarter. Gartnerís figures show that HP held 52.9 percent vendor revenue and 46.3 percent units shipped for the first quarter of calendar year 2008.

Businesses are relying on Integrity server blades, including the recently announced HP Integrity BL870c, to lower the costs of powering their large, business-critical and memory-intensive workloads. According to Paul Miller, vice president, marketing, Enterprise Storage and Servers, HP customers choose their brand mainly because of its energy usage and cost advantages over the competition HP offers the broadest server portfolio in the industry developed for a variety of market segments that each have distinct computing needs.

According to the Gartner study HP has emerged as market leader in blade server with a total revenue increase of 111.7 percent. HP had seen significant success in its Proliant family of servers with x86 revenue increasing 13.5 percent year over year.
