Cisco’s data center sales sequentially declined during Q3FY11
Cisco’s much ballyhooed data center sales sequentially declined during Q3FY11.
Stunningly in my opinion, sales of the ultimate “phoenix” in Cisco’s new product reporting category – data center sales, sequentially declined by -$41 million during Q3′FY11.
This is noteworthy (again in my opinion), because it’s the first sequential quarterly data center sales decline since Cisco began reporting its new product category, which started with Q1′FY10.
Until Q3′FY11, data center and services had been the only 2 sales categories at Cisco (since it reorganized its sales reporting), to never of had a sequential quarterly sales decline.
