HP extended its lead in the worldwide blade server market in both total blade server units shipped and factory revenue, according to second calendar quarter 2007 server market figures released today by industry analyst firm IDC.
HP significantly increased its lead as the No. 1 blade server vendor in the period with 47.2 percent total factory revenue share, a year-over-year factory revenue growth rate of 71.9 percent.
This marks the 21st straight quarter with HP in the lead for units shipped. Interesting stat
In the highly competitive AMD Opteron processor-based server market segment, HP maintained its No. 1 position in both revenue and factory units shipped. Leading the competition in Intel and AMD x86-64-based servers, HP shipped more than 2.4 times and 22.3 times as many servers as IBM and Sun, respectively.
