Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The rapid decline in prices PC server market will start to fall off over the next few years, despite continuing intense competition. According to research from Computer Economics, a US market research firm, prices will start slow their descent in 1999. Prices will continue to fall through to 2000, but with less pace than in 1998. The company predicts prices will fall by around 19 per cent on departmental and enterprise PC servers over the next two years. The work group and entry level market will drop further, shedding 23 per cent from its prices in the same period, according to the report. "Base configurations will continue to improve just as they will in the desktop market. Buyers will gain on related fronts as disk drive price continue to fall and prices for additional memory remain low," said Michael Erbschloe, director of research at Computer Economics.
