Server Sales Up 13 Percent


Server hardware sales are still alive in the cloud age.

The Gartner group has released a study stating that worldwide server sales are up 13% for the first quarter of 2015. According to the report, strong sales in the USA – largely due to a strong American dollar – were enough to counteract the effects of flat or declining sales in other parts of the world.

The first quarter of 2015 was the “second-largest volume quarter ever,” according to Gartner's Adrian O’Connell. The results appear to contradict the doom predictions of analysts and journalists who see the world turning away from new server hardware in favor of cloud solutions. Strong demand in the hyperscale sector leads to the possible explanation that local private cloud systems are fueling some of the growth.
