This IDC study provides IDC's top 10 predictions for the worldwide enterprise server market for 2012. It discusses a number of new trends emerging in the marketplace that are transforming the market dynamics — affecting server suppliers and customers.
"The enterprise server market saw the emergence of new form factors for integrated systems and cloud computing systems in 2011 — and new market dynamics between the vendors themselves," said Jean S. Bozman, research vice president, IDC Enterprise Platforms. "Although the vendor share results show that the top 5 vendors remained in place — continuing their competition — the strategies of each of these vendors evolved during the year to leverage new technology developments, including multicore designs, virtualization, the addition of RAS features for availability, and improved systems management software."
