Q42011 - Server shipments in Asia Pacific grow 15%: Gartner
Looks like China/Asia Pacific is making up for the weakness in US & Europe. If this strength continued in Q1-2012, Intel may still come out ahead of its tempered Q1 forecast.
Server shipments in Asia Pacific grew 15.7 per cent year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2011, while revenue increased 2.4 per cent from the same quarter last year, according to Gartner, Inc.
“Asia Pacific was the fastest growing region for server shipments during the fourth quarter of 2011, with China as the main growth engine, supported by the continued momentum of data centre built out,” said Gartner principal analyst Ms Erica Gadjuli.
“Most major economies in Asia Pacific performed better than the rest of the world, which encouraged IT spending during 2011,” she added
