The dollar share gains Lenovo made were second only to Cisco's during the quarter. Lenovo, which bought IBM's server business last year, finished the second quarter with an 8.7 percent share of the market. A year ago, the Chinese firm's share was 3 percent. Lenovo is a PC powerhouse, and it doesn't hide its desire to take server share away from other industry big shots like HP. The company also recently partnered with Pivot3 on a global hyper-converged infrastructure solution.
