The Server Wars Heat Up
The worldwide server market jumped 26.4 percent year over year to $20.7 billion during the fourth quarter of 2017, according to new data from research firm IDC.
As Dell and Hewlett Packard Enterprise continue to fight for server supremacy, the top five market leaders in the market all saw double-digit revenue growth in the quarter compared with the same quarter in 2016. "Hyper-scalers remained a central driver of volume demand in the fourth quarter with leaders such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google continuing their data center expansions and updates," said Sanjay Medvitz, senior research analyst at IDC for servers and storage, in the report.
