HPE, Dell In Dead Heat In Server Market-Share Battle In 2020

Mark Haranas

As worldwide server revenue reached $24 billion in the second quarter of 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Dell Technologies are neck and neck in market-share leadership.

Fourth Place (Tie): IBM

Market Share: 6%

The Armonk, N.Y.-based IT giant generated $1.45 billion in server revenue during the second quarter, up 22 percent year over year. IBM was able to tie for fourth place in terms of market share by capturing 6 percent share of the worldwide market, representing basically flat share growth compared with the same quarter one year ago.

IBM did not make IDC’s top six in terms of worldwide server unit shipments, which means the company sold less than 130,000 units during the quarter.

IBM recently reported second fiscal quarter revenue of $18.1 billion, down 5.4 percent year over year. In June, IBM acquired cloud security startup Spanugo to boost its compliance and protection capabilities in highly regulated industries.
