Lenovo Rises

Thanks to the addition of the ex-IBM x86 server business, Lenovo was the fourth largest server vendor in terms of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014, with sales rising nearly 750 percent to $1.1 billion. IDC did not break out the Lenovo number according to its original line and the acquired line.

Gartner estimated Lenovo's fourth-quarter 2014 server sales rose just less than 750 percent to $1.1 billion, while its shipments rose 250 percent to breach the 242,000-unit mark. Like IDC, Gartner did not break down the legacy Lenovo vs. legacy IBM server shipments.
