Cisco entered the blade server space about two years ago with its Unified Computing System (UCS) and is currently the third largest player globally, after HP and IBM. As reported on NDTV Profit, Cisco is looking at the rapid growth in demand for cloud computing services as an opportunity to corner the number 2 slot.


 

"'Over the last 12 months, our market share has ramped up. We are now placed third globally. In fact, we are in sitting distance of being the number two as far as the blade server market is concerned,' Cisco Senior Vice-President (Data Centre, Virtualization and Cloud Business) Rajesh Rege told PTI.

"According to the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker for November, 2011, blade servers including x86, EPIC and RISC blades account for $2 billion in revenues, representing 16 per cent of quarterly server market revenue.

"About 89 per cent of all blade revenue is driven by x86-based blades."
