Server makers shift more boxes than cash in Q2

Strong sales of small one- and two-processor systems again pushed the overall server market higher in the second quarter, according to the latest data from Gartner. Total server sales hit $11.5bn in the period - a year-over-year rise of 7.7 percent. Dell enjoyed its familiar position as the fastest growing vendor, and IBM held onto its lead in overall sales. One surprise in the quarter came courtesy of Sun Microsystems, which showed the strongest uptick in units shipped of any vendor.
