Q1 Server Business Plummets: Key Findings From IDC


Linux Server Sales A Real Bright Spot

Server vendors should be giving thanks and praise for Linux.

Thanks to the high-performance computing (HPC) and cloud infrastructure markets, sales of servers for use in Linux environments rose 3.4 percent over last year to $2.5 billion.

As a result, Linux servers now account for 23.1 percent of all server revenue, which is up 2.5 points when compared with the first quarter of 2012.
