Gateway, Inc. announced that it posted the highest annual percentage revenue growth in the volume server market among the top 15 volume server vendors. This, it said, is based on preliminary results released in IDC's "Worldwide Server Market Review, 2003."

Gateway said revenue from sales of its server products in the volume market increased more than 50 percent in 2003, the leading percentage increase in a field that included Hewlett-Packard, Dell, IBM, and others. The company said it also outpaced the volume server market as a whole, which grew at a rate of 9.7 percent year-over-year -- the fastest growing size class of the worldwide server market, according to IDC.

In addition, Gateway said it embraced many of IDC's recommendations in providing server systems to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), government agencies, and educational institutions. Gateway's emphasis on industry standards, focus on single- and dual-processor systems, and ability to remove complexity from its products were in line with IDC suggestions for server vendors, the company said.

"Gateway continues to make progress in executing its enterprise systems strategy, and we see the company as a viable, competitive option for businesses seeking another vendor in the server marketplace," said Lloyd Cohen, IDC's Director of Worldwide Market Analysis.
