Dell Technologies record-breaking $94.2 billion fiscal year 2021 is just the beginning, according to company founder and CEO Michael Dell, with bullish plans in store for this year including an upcoming server launch.
“We have a pretty big server announcement coming up with respect to PowerEdge and our 15th generation here very soon. We’re excited about that,” said Dell in an interview with CRN.

Dell’s PC business delivered record annual sales of $48.4 billion as the company is flourishing in the new remote work and remote learning era.
Dell’s stock is currently trading at all-time highs of over $88 per share, representing a more than 200 percent increase since March 2020.
