The Inevitable Slowdown In Server Spending

It had to happen sooner or later, and really, the wonder is that it hasn’t already happened, given the nature of the infrastructure buildouts at hyperscalers and cloud builders, the skittishness of enterprises due to the trade war between the United States and China, the uncertainty in Europe over the British exit, and general concern with macroeconomic issues because it has now been almost twelve years since the last recession.


Rising Clouds Lift Server Fortunes

The voracious appetite for compute and storage capacity among hyperscalers and cloud builders once again drove the server market to new heights as 2015 came to a close, and unless some wobbling from Hewlett Packard Enteprise and Cisco Systems is a leading indicator of a slowdown – and we do not think it is – then this year will probably also be a record setter.
