HPE's Worldwide Server Market Leadership Slips As Dell, IBM Gain Share
Q3 2017 Market Share: 18.1%
Q3 2016 Market Share: 15.7%
Dell Technologies grew sales a whopping 38 percent year over year, generating $3.07 billion in sales compared with $2.22 billion in third quarter 2016. The Round Rock, Texas-based company led the pack in server shipments during the quarter with 503 million units shipped. Dell's server share increased 2.4 percentage points year over year, capturing 18.1 percent of the total market in third quarter 2017.
Stolarski said Dell's server growth was due to the "the strong synergy between its server team and the storage team incorporated from the EMC acquisition."
