1. Dell Technologies Becomes The Data Center Force

There is no question that 2018 was a critical year for Dell Technologies as the company solidified itself as the global leader in servers, storage and hyper-converged infrastructure. The push began when the company injected a whopping $2 billion into its storage business to wage an all-out assault on the market this year. Along with a new simplified storage portfolio and go-to-market strategy implemented by Michael Dell's (pictured) right-hand-man Jeff Clarke, storage sales flourished for Dell in 2018. The company also took command of the worldwide server market in 2018, besting HPE. Dell and VMware were also the hyper-converged infrastructure market-share leaders this year, which bodes well for Dell's data center infrastructure market share in 2019 as HCI will continue to gain more market traction. With Dell Technologies becoming a public company, the future is bright for the vendor, which looks to continue supremacy in the data center.
