REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 3, 2015 –In a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center information technology (IT) industries, results revealed that white box server vendors captured a second consecutive quarter of high record share of the Server market in first quarter 2015. In North America, more than one third of server shipments were white box.

“Cloud data centers once again comprised a record portion of the server market this quarter,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Director at Dell’Oro Group. “While the growth in servers destined for Cloud deployment has benefited various vendors, including the top US-based server vendors, it has disproportionately bolstered the performance of white box server vendors. This is because most of the growth in Cloud data centers during the quarter was driven by the “Big Four” (Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft), who are mainly deploying white box servers.”

Dell’Oro Group’s Server Quarterly Market Share Report shows how Cloud data center accounts are positioned to influence both the server market and the networking industry. The Report closely tracks several key areas of the market, including migration to higher server access speeds (40 vs. 25 vs. 50 vs. 100 GE). It reveals that the majority of the “Big Four” Cloud providers have already migrated to 40 GE, while enterprise data centers are still migrating to 10 GE.
