Server Market Hits $25.8 Billion
Dell Technologies and Hewlett Packard Enterprise continued to battle it out for global server market share leadership in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The worldwide server market reached $25.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing a year-over-year increase of 1.5 percent, according to new data from research firm IDC. Global server shipments declined 3 percent year over year to nearly 3.3 million units in the fourth quarter.
“Global demand for enterprise servers was relatively flat during the fourth quarter of 2020 with the strongest increase to demand coming from China (PRC),” said Paul Maguranis, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC in a statement.
IDC did not provide exact vendor server revenue numbers for fourth quarter 2020 as it typically does with its IDC Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker market report. Additionally, IDC did not provide exact vendor market share percentages as it has traditionally done in the past. IDC declined to provide exact server figures to CRN when contacted.
CRN based market share percentage on IDC’s server vendor revenue graphic chart as well as on previous IDC server reports. Here are the six vendors that captured the biggest server market share in the world during the fourth quarter of 2020.
