Server Sales Up a Bit in 2006, But Q4 Looks a Bit Weak
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Sometimes, it is not what people say that matters, but what they don't say. The analysts at Gartner and IDC usually race to call each past quarter's server sales by revenue, shipments, and platform type. But this time around, Gartner same out first with numbers, and as it did last year at this time, the company is talking about all four quarters of 2006 instead of singling out the fourth quarter.

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Commercially supported open source software may not be prevalent, but it is not alien in data centers any more and it is certainly getting to be more normal. But if a somewhat self-serving survey of open source projects done by OpenLogic is any indication, many popular open source packages are still lacking enterprise-class support, and this is an issue that has an adverse affect on the adoption of open source products among enterprises.

The X Factor: How Many Servers, How Much Juice, How Much Money?
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Data center managers around the world are complaining about the fact that they are running out of electricity to build out their server farms, and processor and server makers have been struggling in past years to deliver high performance products that can be virtualized and therefore be used more efficiently.
