5. IBM

Market Share: 5.9%

IBM, which recently completed its $34 billion blockbuster acquisition of Red Hat, took home fifth place in terms of global server market share. The Armonk, N.Y.-based company generated $1.19 billion in server revenue in the quarter, down 27.4 percent compared to $1.64 billion in server sales during second quarter 2018.

IBM did not place in the top six vendors in terms of server shipped in the second quarter, meaning the company sold less than 110,000 servers.

Looking ahead, IBM plans to become a market leader for hybrid cloud computing with the purchase of Red Hat. "Businesses are starting the next chapter of their digital reinventions, modernizing infrastructure and moving mission-critical workloads across private clouds and multiple clouds from multiple vendors," said Ginni Rometty, IBM chairman, president and CEO, in July. "They need open, flexible technology to manage these hybrid multicloud environments. And they need partners they can trust to manage and secure these systems. IBM and Red Hat are uniquely suited to meet these needs. As the leading hybrid cloud provider, we will help clients forge the technology foundations of their business for decades to come."
