Managed hosting could be on the rise as worldwide sever shipments soar

Managed hosting could be on the rise as worldwide sever shipments soar

Worldwide server shipments increased by 14.2 per cent in the third quarter of this year, suggesting more businesses are turning to managed hosting.

Furthermore, server revenues rose by 15.3 per cent across the globe and the UK and the US both saw strong third-quarter results, according to research analyst Gartner.

It could mean that cloud computing hosts and outsourcing companies are investing in more servers as firms have their business information kept off-site.

HP and IBM both dominate the market with the latter generating $3.7 billion (£2.37 billion) in revenue in Q3 through server sales.

Adrian O'Connell, research director at Gartner, said that though the figures are positive, vendors will need to continue working hard over the next year to maintain high sales.

"The outlook for 2011 poses continued challenges for server vendors as revenue is expected to grow by only 0.8 per cent," he said.

"A weak economic environment will inhibit overall levels of server spending which will place a premium on vendors who are able to successfully execute on competitive attack programs."

A report by Microsoft, Accenture and WSP Enviornment and Energy last month said that having applications hosted could help businesses cut their energy output by between 30 and 90 per cent.
