x86 and Linux Drive Modest Growth in Worldwide Server Revenues in 3Q04, Says Gartner
Gartner, Inc. reports that worldwide server revenue surpassed $11.8 billion in the third quarter of 2004, a 6 percent increase from the third quarter of 2003. "The server market is still being primarily driven by the x86 segment," said Mike McLaughlin, principal analyst for Gartner. "That, along with the acceptance of Linux in additional application areas in the enterprise space, will continue to drive demand."
