Dell overtakes HP, moves to No 1 spot in worldwide server shipments

Dell moved to the No 1 spot for server shipments in the second quarter of 2016, with a 19% market share, overtaking HP which had a 17% market share. HP remained the leader in server revenues. Worldwide server revenue declined 0.8 % year-over-year (y-o-y), while shipments grew 2 % from the second quarter of 2015, according to Gartner, Inc. "The second quarter of 2016 produced some continued growth on a global level compared with the first quarter, although there were some varied results regionally," said Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice-president, Gartner. "All regions showed a decline in shipments except Asia-Pacific and North America, which posted growth of 5.6% and 3%, respectively. In terms of revenue, all regions except for Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe exhibited a decline. Asia-Pacific grew by 6.1 % and Eastern Europe posted 1% growth. Variations of growth by data centre segments and exchange rate issues are the main reasons for these results," he said.
Despite a decline of 6.4%, HP continued to lead in the worldwide server market, based on revenue, with 23.7% market share. Dell grew 9.9% and maintained the second spot in the market with 19.1% market share. IBM secured the third position with 9.1% of the market share, but it experienced the largest decline among the top five vendors. Due to its success in the x86 market, Dell moved to the No 1 position in server shipments in the second quarter of 2016, with 8.9% growth, garnering 19.2% market share. HP dropped to the second spot with 17.2 % shipment share, representing an 18.7% decline year-over-year.
