Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global White-Box Server Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global white-box server market: Inventec, Quanta Computer, Super Micro Computer, and Wistron.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABMX, Celestica, Flextronics, Hon Hai, Hyve Solutions, Iron Systems, MiTAC Holdings, Servers Direct, StackVelocity Group, and USI Shanghai.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend that is expected to boost market growth is the increased adoption of containerized and micro-mobile data center solutions. A containerized data center is a portable data center pre-installed inside a shipping container. These data centers are a part of a modular data center where each module is a container that can host IT, power, and cooling equipment. The installation to deployment time for these modules is less than six months, and the cost of these facilities is around $7 million, but may vary based on requirement. A wide range of racks and computing equipment are hosted within a containerized data center facility. These data centers are easy to relocate from one location to another and can be managed centrally.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the growing business needs of companies. The adoption of cloud-based services and big data analytics is growing rapidly. In addition, digitalization has enabled the processing of application workloads on servers with cross-platform support. Processor manufacturers such as Intel are looking to increase the efficiency of the servers in a distributed computing environment. Enterprises can obtain competitive advantages through the effective utilization of data center infrastructure.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the unreliability of servers based on life span. In general, the performance of servers starts to degrade after 5 years and enterprises have to replace them.
