Global enterprise server market logs $24 billion in Q2: IDC

The global enterprise server market grew 19.8 percent in the second quarter (year over year) to reach $24 billion on robust demand, according to a new report.

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, worldwide server shipments grew 18.4 percent to nearly 3.2 million units in the June quarter.

HPE/New H3C Group finished the quarter with a market share of 14.9 percent while Dell Technologies captured a 13.9 percent share of worldwide revenues.

“We certainly see areas of reduced spending, but this was offset by investments made by large cloud builders and enterprises targeting solutions that support shifting infrastructure needs caused by the global pandemic,” said Paul Maguranis, senior research analyst, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC.

Investments in Asia/Pacific were also particularly strong, growing 31 percent year over year.

Inspur/Inspur Power Systems took third place with a 10.5 percent share.

Lenovo and IBM tied for the fourth spot with 6.1 percent and 6 percent share, respectively.

In terms of server-class, volume server revenue was up 22.1 per cent to $18.7 billion, while midrange server revenue declined 0.4 per cent to about $3.3 billion and high-end systems grew by 44.1 percent to $1.9 billion.

The ODM Direct group of vendors accounted for 28.8 percent of total server revenue at $6.9 billion with year-over-year growth of 63.4 percent and delivered 34.4 percent of all units shipped during the quarter, the IDC said.
