HP Girding Its ProLiant Loins for Battle in 2004
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

When you are the volume leader in the worldwide server market, it is hard to stay in that position and it is harder still to grow. At some point, any big player hits the limit of large numbers, where an increase in market share comes with diminished marginal returns in terms of sales or profits.

SGI Targets Midrange HPC with Linux-Based Altix 350s
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Supercomputer maker SGI may be working on getting a commercial 128-way Itanium-based server out the door for high performance computing (HPC) customers sometime this spring, but it has its sights on the broader market for so-called midrange HPC gear. The high-end of the HPC market gets all the glory, but the money is really made in the midrange.
