Sun Microsystems Middle East & Africa has announced more than 20 per cent growth in shipments of its server technology over the last four quarters. On a global basis, Sun reported revenues of $12.5 billion, where the fourth quarter showed an increase of 10 percent ($3.4 billion), as compared with $3.1 billion in revenues reported for the third quarter of fiscal year 2002.

Sun has been steadily increasing its market share during the last twelve months in the oil and gas sector as well as government and telecommunications sectors. The vendor’s regional operations reported that its enterprise storage and entry-level technologies represented the company’s fastest-growing product offerings in the Middle East.

"Sun's major regional accomplishment over the last twelve months, in addition to maintaining our market share in the high-end space, has been to successfully deploy solutions for smaller and medium-sized businesses in the Gulf, Levant and North African countries," commented Denis Heraud, regional manager, Sun Microsystems, Eastern Mediterranean, Middle East & Africa (EMMA).

"Our immediate objective for the next two quarters is to reinforce Sun's position as one of the few companies, in partnership with key industry players, to provide complete solutions for the end-user in the Middle East. We are working with organisations of all sizes across the region to boost their return on IT investment, and reduce the overall total cost of ownership through Sun’s integrated solutions," added Heraud.
