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.
