HP claims big gains in workstation sales

HP is claiming major gains in the enterprise workstation space, pointing to a recently released IDC report which put HP's share of the market at 44 percent during the third quarter of 2009.

The vendor claimed that the growth is due in large part to the troubled economy. As companies have looked at ways to save money, the use of low-cost, centrally hosted and managed workstation setups have grown in popularity.

"In a difficult economy, we have seen customers around the globe investing in HP Z Workstations because of the surprisingly short period of time that the workstations pay for themselves with performance and productivity gains," said HP workstation vice president and general manager Jim Zafarana.

HP and its rival hardware vendors are not the only companies seeking to take a stake in the growth of workstations. Virtualisation firms have touted the potential for their products to manage workstation deployments more efficiently and reliably at the administrator end.
