IDC Server Market Share

Gigaom | IDC Server Market share

This IDC study discusses the introduction of new systems that contributed to growth in AL4 market. The prevailing trend that we described in last year's document had been one of gradual or wholesale conversion to x86 for several AL4 vendors except IBM (for IBM's z Systems). But now that IBM's Enterprise Power servers and Oracle's SuperCluster have been included, the RISC processor has made a powerful entry into the market. Not only that, Unix has reemerged in the AL4 market as IBM's systems predominantly sell with AIX as the OS (they also support Linux) and with Oracle SuperCluster running on Solaris.

"Even with the recent product announcements, there's still an opportunity to expand the market for fault-tolerant servers with innovative products that deliver on today's widespread customer needs (mobile, cloud, next-gen apps development, and Internet of Things) in a transparently priced, fault-tolerant package for the rapidly expanding always-on world, " said Lloyd Cohen, research director, Server and Computing Platforms. "Users now have more product offerings that meet the AL4 classification requirement both in an x86 environment or non-x86 environment running Unix, Linux, or other operating systems."
