As the recession recedes in the rearview mirror, server sales are enjoying robust gains. Kenneth Corbin reports.

Server vendors continue to reap the benefits from an economic rebound, with fourth-quarter global revenues and shipments both posting double-digit increases, according to the latest market analysis from research firm IDC.

Fourth-quarter revenue for the global server market jumped 15.3 percent to $15 billion, the largest quarterly increase in three years, according to IDC. Shipments for the period were up 6.1 percent over fourth quarter 2009 to 2.1 million.

For the year, server sales jumped 11.4 percent over 2009 to $48.1 billion, with global shipments up 15.3 percent to 7.6 million units.

Although a bit lower, those figures are roughly in line with Gartner’s recent analysis of the server market.
