As an information management software analyst, I don’t spend a great deal of time looking at hardware, but when I look for a more holistic view, I occasionally check in with Gartner colleagues. Recently I had a few questions about Oracle’s hardware mix during inquiries, so I decided to check in with my colleague Errol Rasit about Gartner Quarterly Market Statistics, and find out how the hardware recovery I keep hearing about was going. What I discovered surprised me, especially in light of the messages I hear from the vendor.
There is no “recovery.” It appears that the picture remains rather bleak, especially on the SPARC side.
