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.

Third Place: Inspur

Market Share: 10.5%

China-based Inspur benefited greatly from strong server demand in the Asia-Pacific region, growing revenue faster than any other vendor worldwide during the second quarter.

Inspur generated $2.53 billion in server revenue, up 77 percent year over year. The company captured 10.5 percent share of the global server market in the second quarter, up significantly from 7.1 percent share one year ago.

“Investments in Asia-Pacific were particularly strong, growing 31 percent year over year,” said IDC’s Maguranis in regard to the overall server market.

Inspur reported the largest growth in server shipments as well by shipping 353,300 units, up nearly 53 percent year over year. Inspur captured 11.1 percent share in terms of the total servers shipped during the quarter.
