the sales of waiters victims of the virtualisation?

Business – In the 4th quarter 2008, Gartner been worth the fall in value of the march of the waiters 15,1%. The cabinet is pessimistic for 2009. In addition to the crisis, the consolidation of the datacenters by the virtualisation could influence the sales.

the cabinet D `tudes Gartner comes to confirm the figures dj avancs by IDC: the march of the waiters knew with the quatrime quarter 2008 terrible a dconvenue. D `a Anne on the other, the fall is of 11,7% in volume and 15,1% in figure D `businesses. and them, the phnomne of crisis N `is not tranger this collapse of the sales.

« Almost all the segments of march are touchs whereas the users have cherch rduire the cots and the dpenses, deferring the projects each time C `is possible » , note Heeral Kota de Gartner. The only segment chapper with stagnation is that of the waiters blades which records a growth of 30,6% in incomes.

On the other hand, over the quarter, the waiters x86 show a fall of 11,4% and 18,1%, respectively in volume and value. The march of the waiters Unix, dtenu 52,6% by Sun (in front of IBM and HP), N `is gure into better sant with a fall of figure D `businesses for the segment of 13,7%.

Of the possible repurchases between manufacturers of waiters

All segments confused, the whole of the manufacturers of waiters is touch by the collapse of the sales. IBM, first of the Gartner classification in the 4th quarter in terms of figure D `businesses (4,38 billion dollars), sees its incomes melting of 17,4% (mainly because of the fall of its sales of waiters x64). , in deuxime position, 10% lose 3,94 billion dollars. Dell cde 11,2% (1,4 billion dollar) and Sun 14,9% (1,26 billion dollar). Fujitsu finally gives up 9% 560,4 million dollars.

And Gartner, fascinating like indicator the tat of the sales at the end of 2008, N `is not more optimistic for 2009. « The weakness of the environment conomic will encourage the users prudence in matire of dpenses, which will accrotra competition between the diffrents manufacturers. The march of the waiters is strongly dj concentr, nanmoins the conditions awaited for 2009 should increase the risk of consolidation » , Heeral Kota underlines.

does the crisis explain it only the bad one sant sales? Certain analysts spculent dj on D `other causes, of which. According to Goldman Sachs, in 2009, a third of the waiters exploits by the thousand plus large companies will be virtualiss.

the virtualisation in growth of 43%

This consolidation of the march of the waiters and the rationalization of the centers of give would then impact directly the purchase of new quipements. A possible corrlation between the adoption of the virtualisation and the fall of the sales of waiters will be can-tre tudie in 2009. Gartner counts for the Anne on a growth of the march of the virtualisation of 43%. But the effects of the crisis make however complex such an analysis by the figures.

In addition, the waiters D `between range, coteux, would be prfrs with the products means and high-end, thus grinding the incomes gnrs by the manufacturers. This explanation N `is however not new and S `indeed also applies to the PC, because of, whose average costs are of 330 euros.

According to GFK, the netbooks would contribute the fall of 16% of the average costs D `a gold …
