Revenue growth from S&TG eServer products was driven by iSeries midrange servers, which increased 25 percent; pSeries UNIX servers, an increase of 15 percent; and xSeries servers, which increased 11 percent. Revenues from the zSeries mainframe product decreased 4 percent compared with the year-ago period. Total delivery of zSeries computing power, which is measured in MIPS (millions of instructions per second), increased 18 percent. In addition to eServers, revenues from Storage Systems and Microelectronics increased 11 percent and 14 percent, respectively." I'm not an expert at interpreting numbers but, it looks rosy for the Iseries. I wonder what regions the sales are happening in?
