Sun Holds #1 Position in UNIX Shipments, According to IDC

IDC released its Q4CY07 Worldwide Server Tracker this morning. According to the results, Sun continues to show momentum in the server market, holding the #1 position in UNIX shipments. For the calendar year 2007, Sun held the #3 position in total server factory revenue (statistically tied with Dell). Other Sun highlights for Q4CY07 include:

  • Sun's UltraSPARC T1 and T2-based CMT server systems outshipped Itanium in Q4CY07, spotlighting the power of the Solaris OS and the value of the systems' breakthrough performance with dramatic space and power efficiency.
  • Sun delivered triple-digit blades year-on-year revenue growth, spurred by the industry's most comprehensive blades portfolio spanning AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon and SPARC.
  • Sun's UNIX blades (includes CMT and Netra) captured 49.6% revenue marketshare -- nearly half the revenue marketshare in the UNIX blades space.

More than a dozen Sun systems are available for a free 60-day trial as part of Sun's Try-and-Buy program. More information is available at:http://www.sun.com/tryandbuy/index.jsp Information on Sun's full line of servers is available at http://www.sun.com/servers.
