For six of the past seven quarters IDC estimates that server revenue has declined between 1.3% and 7.2% and that the December 2012 quarter is the only time it has risen. It projects that server units were flat in the quarter at 2.3 million. Worldwide server revenue declined in all major geographic regions including Americas, EMEA, and Asia/Pacific in the third quarter. The market was impacted by a steady transition from 2nd Platform to 3rd Platform workload demand coupled with particularly weak sales of Unix servers, which served to further dampen the market.
