Sun's Factory Revenue Doubles Competitors in Worldwide Volume Servers

12/1/2003 - Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW) announced that the company grew factory revenue twice as fast as any of its major competitors in the worldwide volume servers (servers priced less than $25,000) sequentially quarter-to-quarter, according to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker [1], which was released recently. Sun had double-digit growth in unit shipments, both on a quarter-to-quarter sequential basis, and on a year-over-year basis, in three key categories of the volume server segment: all operating systems, UNIX and UNIX+Linux.

"Today numbers are evidence that Sun is delivering extreme performance at compelling prices, beating our rivals in a key segment and applying pressure on them to cut costs," said Larry Singer, Sun's senior vice president, global market strategies. "We intend to continue this trend as we start delivering low-cost products based on our new alliance with AMD. And stayed tuned for next week's Sun Network, where we'll make a series of announcements that will further improve our competitive edge."
