IBM and HP are in a duel to be the favored enterprise server provider, but there are many other players to keep things interesting. For instance, Dell is a solid No. 3 and Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems should keep the server market interesting. Cisco also aims to be a server player. A recent trend: Creating application optimized servers.
