Sun Microsystems has nearly doubled unit shipments of its servers for the quarter and achieved 99.7% growth, and its market share for the High Performance and Technical Computing was 46.9%, according to a report by IDC.
Shahin Khan, vice-president of the HPTC business unit at Sun, said that "all the pieces of Sun's HPTC strategy are coming together and these numbers prove we are delivering what the market wants".
"Despite shipping units only since the summer of 2003, Sun scored substantial wins with large Sun Fire V60x cluster configurations that appeared on the Top 500 Supercomputers list announced in November," he added.
Khan said that deployments of clustered Sun Fire V60x servers for the Linux platform doubled because of rapid market acceptance of the Sun Fire V60x server clusters.
