HP Captures No. 1 Position in Total Server Revenue Worldwide



PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 30, 2003--HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced that it has taken over the No. 1 worldwide position in overall total server revenue, with 27.9 percent market share for the first calendar quarter of 2003, according to figures released today by IDC(1). HP gained 2.1 percent in server market revenue share over the previous quarter, Q402.

HP continues to showcase the power of its broad server portfolio for enterprise customers, as demonstrated by the following worldwide leadership positions:

-- HP tied for the No. 1 position in overall UNIX(R) server revenue, extending HP's UNIX high-end enterprise server leadership (servers priced at $500,000, or more) for a third consecutive quarter, based on IDC's new server taxonomy(2). HP's growth in UNIX high-end enterprise servers is based on strong HP Superdome server sales worldwide.
-- HP continued its No. 1 position in overall Windows(R) server revenue, based on strong ProLiant server sales worldwide.
-- HP maintained its No. 1 position in overall Linux server revenue and sustained its leadership for the Linux x86 segment, gaining market share sequentially in both revenue and units.

"Thanks to loyal customers, a powerful portfolio and continued innovation, HP is now the world's most popular server vendor," said Peter Blackmore, executive vice president, HP Enterprise Systems Group. "HP's multi-OS strategy uniquely sets us apart from others, and it is evident that customers are embracing HP's vision for the Adaptive Enterprise."
