Sun Server Sales Up in Shrinking Market

Brein Matturro Profile: Brein Matturro

IDC claims Sun regained the #3 position in overall server market share this summer, with 12.9% of a weakening market, stepping over distressed Dell. IBM still leads the server space, and HP remains in second; but only Sun saw an increase in market share, and a bump in revenues as well.

The UltraSPARC platform is still Sun’s main money-maker…

“…but the growth in the company’s Opteron-based products are having a positive impact,” IDC enterprise server research director Steve Josselyn said.

…reports BetaNews.

Well, duh.  Having a viable product to compete with Dell (with less heat issues) certainly should have a “positive impact.”
