This Tabor Research report presents our 2008 server revenue estimates for the traditional High Productivity Computing (HPC) market. Tabor Research estimates that the traditional HPC server market generated approximately $7.50 billion in revenue in 2008, declining from $7.76 billion in 2007. The traditional HPC server market declined 3.4% year-over-year.

Key estimates from the study include:

  • The Supercomputer segment represents a respectable 18.5% of the HPC market. Supercomputers were the only product class to experience growth during 2008.
  • HP led the market in 2007 and 2008, with IBM within three share points of the lead. Each company has captured about a third of the market for the last three years.
  • In 2008, HPC sales in EMEA and Asia-Pacific showed positive growth while North America declined in growth. North America still represents over half of the market at 54.5%.
  • The largest portion of sales in economic sectors went to Commerce/Industry with 45.0% of the market.
