Cisco Is Gaining Share
Cisco, which unveiled its Unified Computing System four years ago, continues to gain share.
Cisco, in fact, next to Dell, was the only other vendor to show positive shipment share growth in the worldwide market, according to Gartner.
Cisco's worldwide shipment share was up 33 percent to a 2.3 percent share of the market with 53.87 million units shipped in the first quarter compared with 1.7 percent, or 40.49 million units shipped, in the similar quarter one year ago.
Cisco gets a chance to celebrate its strong showing in servers, albeit from a relatively small base, at its worldwide partner conference in Boston next week.
