Fujitsu has the highest growth among the top five vendors in the worldwide server market for 4Q10, according to the independent market research firm Gartner (Market Share Alert: Server Shipments, Worldwide, 4Q10; Moderate Finish in 2010 for the Server Market, by Heeral Kota and Errol Rasit, ID Number: G00210339). With global year-on-year growth of 12.6 percent in server unit shipments*, Fujitsu increased both sales and market share.
In the expanding x86 server market segment, Fujitsu also delivered the strongest growth among the top five server vendors, increasing global year-on-year sales of its PRIMERGY lines by 12.5 per cent** in comparison to a market average growth of 6.3 percent. In EMEA, PRIMERGY x86 industry standard servers enjoyed a huge 20.8 percent year-on-year growth in shipments, more than a factor of four times the average market growth of 4.7 percent.***
Says Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice Pr esident Datacenter Systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions: “We believe the latest independent market figures underline that Fujitsu is on the right track by focusing on customer needs and delivering better long-term value. We are also seeing the benefits of the global rollout of the Fujitsu SELECT partner program. Although we continue to focus on growing our market share, our strategy is not to achieve gains just by slashing prices.”
