5 Companies That Came To Win This Week


HP, Foxconn Alliance Seeks Server Price-Performance Boost

Hewlett-Packard and Taiwanese contract manufacturer Foxconn Technology struck a strategic commercial agreement this week to develop a line of servers the companies said would deliver dramatic breakthroughs in server price-performance.

The project will disrupt traditional hyperscale server design, according to the companies, creating new cloud-optimized servers specifically targeted toward service providers. HP and Foxconn, already major players in the server arena, are angling to grab an even bigger share of the market for hyperscale servers that IDC forecasts will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15 percent to 20 percent through 2018.
