Asia-Pacific server revenue rose to A$1.2 billion in Q3, an increase of 1.4 per cent on the same period last year, according to Gartner Dataquest.
China continued to dominate the market with a 29.9 per cent revenue share but suffered a 10.2 per cent decline in Q3 compared to the same quarter last year.
"Despite the server revenue decline in China, growth in mature markets such as Australia and Korea, coupled with significant emerging market increases such as Indonesia and India, resulted in positive revenue growth for the region," said Matthew Boon, principal analyst for Gartner Dataquest Asia-Pacific's computer platforms group.
"While conditions remain difficult, the fact that the region registered growth in the face of continuing global uncertainty indicates its relative resilience to adverse outside influences."
Post-merger HP/Compaq ended the quarter with a 29 per cent market share, down 1 per cent. IBM retained market-leader status with 38 per cent, down 1.9 per cent from the year-ago quarter, and Sun Microsystems showed the biggest gain, jumping to a 14.6 per cent share from 11.8 per cent a year ago.
