The Server Market Struggles for Growth in Q2, Says IDC
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The second quarter is never a particularly good one for the server business, and according to the latest statistics from IDC, server makers are having a hard time making up their revenues in volume. In the second quarter of 2006, worldwide server revenues across all types of servers rose by only six-tenths of a percent to $12.3 billion, and server volumes decelerated to a mere 8.3 percent growth, with just over 1.8 million units shipped. This is the third straight quarter of single-digit server shipment growth, and the eighth quarter of slowing shipments. READ MORE >

IBM Finishes Up Power5+ Rollout on System p5 Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

IBM last week announced that it has completed the rollout of its Power5+ processors into its System p5 line, putting the dual-core 2.1 GHz chips into its entry AIX server line. The revamped products also support the Power5+ quad-core modules (QCMs), which IBM first introduced last fall in its midrange Unix servers. The QCMs cram two dual-core Power5+ chips onto a single chip package, allowing IBM to double the core count per chip socket in the servers. READ MORE >

Intel Delivers 'Tulsa' Xeon MP Server Chip Early
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Intel will today roll out its next-generation Xeon MP processor for high-end servers, code-named "Tulsa" and sold under the Xeon 7100 series brand name. The Tulsa chips are, unlike their "Paxville" Xeon MP predecessors, true dual-core processors. They are not just two single-core chips jammed into a chip package that fits in a single processor socket. Servers using the Tulsa chip can deliver between 60 and 70 percent more performance than those using the Paxvilles. And they are coming to market a little bit earlier than expected. READ MORE >


Does the Size of Your IT Supplier Really Matter?
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Numbers matter to people. There are symbolic floors and ceilings, expressed as numbers, that delineate what most of us consider the proper bounds to reality or significant milestones. Think of Dow 10,000, or the turn of the millennium, or a 25th wedding anniversary, or breaking the 10-second barrier for the 100-meter dash, or pushing through the sound barrier. Moreover, disasters magnify with increasing numbers by more than you might think possible--if you weren't human, that is. We rank the events and the things in our lives by numbers, and in many cases, the changing numbers change our behavior. Even if it is not always logical. READ MORE >
