The server market is dominated by North America suppliers: IBM, HP, Dell, Oracle/Sun, but there are aggressive/innovative smaller firms, including several in Taiwan and China, plus a trend toward large end users like Google, assembling their own. This, combined with a trend toward cloud computing, server virtualization, and low power micro-server systems, is changing the server landscape.

Major suppliers both outsource and have their own factories in North America, Europe and Asia. The dynamics of competition are as follows:

  • Intel remains strong due to CPUs, chip sets, motherboards and overall influence on X86 server designs.
  • 75% of Intel’s Chips used to go to IBM, HP and Dell. In 2012 at least 8 firms buy 75% of Intel’s server chips. However, Intel faces a major challenge from low power, Linux and ARM-based server systems.
  • Microsoft also remains a strong influence with Windows NT and Server 2012 software.
  • The Intel-Microsoft Duopoly in PCs has relentlessly shifted the Server market toward Wintel designs.
  • HP has had on-going corporate controversy and has the potential for downsizing or reorganization.
  • Dell has focused on servers to shore up profitability and is solidly #3 in server sales.
  • IBM remains the industry leader in dollars and profitability – but may be exposed to lower cost solutions.
  • Sun is under Oracle ownership and has a strong, if not eroded following in the IT industry.
  • Lenovo is emerging as a force in China, and will become an increasing factor in that fast-rising market.
  • Startups and venture firms continue to make the server market space interesting.
  • Micro-server technology, virtualization, open-source and cloud computing will impact the server market.
  • Virtualization can cannibalize 10-1 server hardware where it is deployed and is a serious emerging factor.
  • Cloud computing is a major sift, with some companies tooling remote server/storage ‘in the cloud’.
  • Solid state disk use is increasing due to high reliability, low power and fast access times.
  • SSDs will compliment, not replace HDDs in server/storage markets.
