Behind The Numbers: Analyzing Gartner's Q2 Server Estimates


US Not Leading The Server Charge

The U.S. server market grew 1.9 percent in terms of shipments over last year, but it saw revenue drop 5.1 percent, Gartner reported.

That was puny growth compared to the rest of the world.

Canada's server shipments rose 2.7 percent and revenue rose 6.3 percent, Asia/Pacific saw a 21.7 percent growth in shipments and a 10.0 percent growth in revenue, and Latin America had a 1.0 percent drop in shipments but flat revenue growth, Gartner said.

Things could be worse. Europe, the Middle East and Africa, known collectively as EMEA, suffered a 5.9 percent drop in server shipments and a 4.6 percent drop in server revenue, Gartner said.
