Global server market revives with 2.8% growth: Gartner

New Delhi, Sep 12 - Global server revenue increased 2.8% year-on-year (YoY) while shipments grew 2.4% in the second quarter of 2017, market research firm Gartner said.

It is an improvement from the previous quarter when the revenue saw a decline of 4.5% (YoY) and shipments had fallen 4.2%.

"The second quarter of 2017 produced some growth compared with the first quarter on a global level, with varying regional results," said Jeffrey Hewitt, Research Vice President, Gartner, in a statement.

The growth was attributed to the strong regional performance in Asia-Pacific because of data centre infrastructure growth, mostly in China and in the self-build original design manufacturer (ODM) segment.

Despite a decline of 9.4%, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) continued to lead in the worldwide server market based on revenue. The company posted $3.2 billion in revenue with total market share of 23%.

With 7% growth and 19.9% market share, Dell EMC retained the second position. It was followed by Huawei which marked a growth of 57.8%, accounting for 6.1% market share in the quarter.

In terms of server shipments, Dell EMC maintained the top position with 17.5% market share, followed by HPE with 17.1%.

"x86 servers increased 2.5% in shipments and 6.9% in revenue," noted Hewitt.

The 'other' CPU category, which primarily comprises of mainframes, showed a decline of 29.5%  in revenue.
