REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—September 14, 2015In a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, results revealed that server shipments to Cloud data centers slowed in 2Q15, but continued to be the driving force in the server market.  Server market unit shipments recorded a tenth consecutive quarter of Y/Y growth.

“Cloud data center deployments continued to grow and comprised a higher portion of shipments. However, Cloud growth was modest in 2Q15 compared with the two previous record-setting quarters,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Director at Dell’Oro Group. “CAPEX growth rates of the leading four Cloud data center accounts (in alphabetical order, Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft) suggest a decelerating growth trend. Although this deceleration might be viewed as an indication of a maturing market, we believe that server shipments to Cloud data centers will continue increasing over at least the next five years and that the pause in the second quarter is temporary, reflecting the lumpy nature of Cloud data center deployments.”

 Dell’Oro Group’s Server Report shows which Cloud data center accounts drove most of the growth during the quarter. The report explains how the quarterly mix of server shipments by Cloud accounts affected market shares of white box vendors, traditional U.S.-based server vendors and Chinese server vendors. The report also reveals the status of Cloud vs. enterprise migration to high-speed server access  (40 vs. 25 vs. 50 vs. 100 GE).
