Dell Beats HPE In Global Server Market Share Fight
CRN breaks down the top five global server market share leaders, according to new data from IDC, with the first quarter of 2021 seeing server market growth soar 12 percent year over year to $20.9 billion.
No. 3 (Tied): Lenovo
Market Share: 6.9%
The PC giant’s new Infrastructure Solutions Group has been on fire as of late. Lenovo generated $1.44 billion in server sales in the first quarter of 2021, up 35 percent year over year. No other server company in the world is growing server revenues as fast as Lenovo, according to IDC data. The spike in server sales enabled Lenovo to grow its market share from 5.7 percent share in the first quarter of 2020 to 6.9 percent server share today.
In terms of the number of servers shipped globally, the Hong Kong-based company – whose U.S. headquarters is in Raleigh, N.C. – sold a total of 169,500 server units in the quarter, up nearly 10 percent compared to 154,500 units one year ago.
Lenovo recently delivered a record-breaking fourth fiscal quarter with total revenue skyrocketing 48 percent to $15.6 billion. Lenovo’s Infrastructure Solutions Group, which includes servers, storage and hyperconverged infrastructure, grew 32 percent year over year to $1.6 billion.
