The Traditional HPC market in total (including servers, storage, software, networks, and other products) represents a $19.0 billion market in 2008, declining by 2.4% from about $19.5 billion in 2007.
Servers are important, but they are only part of the story. End-user budget data indicates that severs account for approximately 39% of the total product revenue, or about $7.5 billion.
Combined, the software, storage, and services segments account for about 48% of the market.
We expect servers to continue to decline in market share as the overall market expands.
Storage continues to grow both in share of the total HPC market and in importance to HPC productivity. Storage interconnects and parallel file systems are currently two areas of particular interest.
