A study released by research firm TheInfoPro states that Overall server spending in enterprises remains weak in 2010 as companies continue to look for ways to save money following the economic downturn. Also noted in this Network World report is that even though demand for server hardware has picked up, spending has flattened due to growing trends like virtualization.

Research firm TheInfoPro says overall server spending in enterprises remains weak in 2010 following the economic downturn.

"Server budgets remain weak despite predictions of having reached an inflection point, Gill said. Companies are getting a better understanding of how to virtualize IT environments, and there is also a big move toward consolidation, which has reduced the need for a large number of servers.

"Server software spending is growing this year, but may slow down in 2011, according to the survey. Companies like Microsoft, VMware and Red Hat are benefiting from the trend, but spending could slow next year as hardware consolidates."
