Rick Whiting

CRN staff compiled the top partner-friendly products that launched or were significantly updated over the last year. Now it’s up to solution providers to choose the winners.

Industry-Standard Servers:

Industry-standard servers are a core component of on-premises data center operations – and a key IT vendor product sold through the channel.

Statista forecasts that server revenue overall will reach $90.8 billion this year and grow at a CAGR of 5.72 percent through 2028 to $119.9 billion.

But as businesses ramp up AI, machine learning and other high-performance computing workloads, demand for industry-standard servers may slow as demand for more specialized, high-powered servers increases.
