WSJ: IBM mulls sale of x86 server ops

  • IBM (IBM) is again exploring a sale of its low-end x86 server business, the WSJ reports, with Dell a potential a suitor.
  • IBM was in talks to sell the unit to Lenovo in Spring last year, but negotiations broke down over price. The Chinese company valued the operations at less than $2.5B.
  • The latest report comes after sales of IBM's x86 servers fell 18% on year in Q3 in what was a tough overall year for the company's hardware division.

    Huawei would be another interesting option although, like Lenovo, it would kill any government or telco accounts in the US.
