REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 9, 2014 –In a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industry, results revealed that Cloud and China were the two major trends that impacted server market growth, server vendor performance, as well as server migration to higher speeds during the third quarter of 2014.

“Server market performance remains fairly weak, depressed by server virtualization and server migration to the Cloud,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Director at Dell’Oro Group. “We estimate that more than 25% of server shipments this year have gone to Cloud and we expect that portion will continue to grow. Consequently, traditional server vendors’ performance is being negatively affected as white box servers continue to gain traction in Cloud deployments, comprising about 10% of server shipments in the third quarter 2014,” Boujelbene remarked.

The Server report also shows that US-based vendor performance was further depressed by Chinese server vendors as China is the fastest growing region for servers and is promoting customers buy local brands.

The Dell’Oro Group Server Quarterly Market Share Report is also the first report to examine servers from a networking perspective. It closely tracks several key areas of the market, including the migration to higher server access speeds (25 Gbps vs. 40 Gbps) and shows how it is impacted by server migration to Cloud.
