Behind The Numbers: Analyzing Gartner's Q2 Server Estimates


Recap: Dell

Dell has shown just enough growth in server shipments and sales to coincide with HP's decreases to bring it to within striking distance of HP in both server shipments and revenue.

Dell shipped 551,000 servers in the second quarter, just shy of HP's shipments of 586,857 units. Dell also had server revenue of $2.2 billion, which is still some distance from HP's $3.1 billion, according to Gartner. But, overtaking HP in both could be just a matter of time, depending on how HP fares in the near future.
