Linux server numbers soar


From our sister site SearchDataCenter.com comes word that Linux server revenue growth has accelerated. Again.

After two consecutive quarters of single-digit revenue growth, Linux server revenue growth accelerated once again, growing 15.3% to $1.8 billion when compared with Q4 2005. Linux servers now represent 11.9% of all server revenue, up more than one point over Q4 2005. But Linux server shipments declined 0.8% year over year after 18 quarters of double-digit shipment growth, as IT consolidation extends its reach into the open source domain.

Looks like Saugatuck Technology analyst Bill McNee was right when he predicted a surge in mission critical Linux deployments this year, no?
