The report, now available on ASDReports, recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Data Center Server Market: Cisco, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Lenovo and Oracle
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bull (Atos), Hitachi, Huawei, Inspur, NEC, SGI and Super Micro Computer
Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “Factors such as virtualization, server consolidation, and intense competition among server manufacturers, vanity-free server assemblers, and global economic conditions are influencing the price of server units. Enterprises are focusing more on consolidation, virtualization, and migration to reduce data center infrastructure cost without any reduction in efficiency. The adoption of x86 servers is decreasing because of their falling average selling prices. Converged systems are experiencing an increased adoption rate compared to blade servers. Although the overall server market is growing on a year-over-year basis, the sales of any server model differ from one vendor to the other. This might be because of enterprise preference for a particular server model from a single vendor. There is intense competition among vendors in the market.”
According to the report, analytic applications used for Big Data analytics and other complex cloud-based applications require high computing power. These applications keep both virtualized and physical servers operating continuously in data centers. Data centers owned by Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft are equipped with energy-efficient servers. The growing demand for servers from these organizations will aid the adoption of servers. In addition, vendors design and manufacture servers for particular business needs such as mission-critical servers or high-performance computing servers. During the forecast period, business growth will necessitate the use of complex applications with huge volumes of data and prompt enterprises to invest in long-term server hardware.
Further, the report states that the average life span of a server is around five years. However, the performance of a server can start deteriorating in a year or two. This might be because of their compatibility in processing modern workloads.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
